There are some passionate collectors in this town and we are so grateful to those who trusted us with their lot and displayed them in our vestibule case. So far, our patrons have enjoyed seeing keychains, nesting dolls, fridge magnets, oil paintings, handmade beaded earrings, seashells, pin cushions, cat memorabilia, and knitting projects. We are looking forward to being surprised with more unique collections from Fox River Grove Memorial Library patrons.
