Carolyn Hettenhouse, Friends of Cromaine, Senior Center Orchestra
“I’m excited to have this added space for the Friends. We raise over $10,000 each year, but my garage is filled to the rafters with boxes of donated books waiting to be sold. This WILL make a difference--
for me, for the Friends, and for our community.”
Jen Thomas, Hartland Players, Boxing Autism
“Although I have been going to the library for 12 years I am still amazed at all it continues to offer. I hope and pray that this bond goes through in the Fall. This library is Hartland’s most valuable 
FREE public resource.”

 a small group! The investment is worth it!”

“I look to this new library plan, as a great addition to help our community succeed and grow. Through a better and more efficient facility, the programs that are so sought after will be able to continue and be 
enhanced.  I believe this library improvement plan is best for the future of Hartland. Its residents and its businesses.”

I am excited for all of us!”

bond effort as the resources provided to support summer programs, reading programs, and technology access for our children's education are invaluable to building a strong community."

Barb Benford, Teacher, Ore Creek Middle School
"As Hartland Round Elementary School librarian and a teacher, Cromaine
has become an important resource for my students, teachers, and me.
When we need books that are not in our school library, I turn to Cromaine.
The librarians are great at helping me find enough fiction, nonfiction, and
multiple copies of books for my many enthusiastic readers."
