Dry Cleaning Service unable to continue.

The Decorah Dry Cleaners discontinued this service to this area.  The Decorah Dry Cleaners will not be able to continue the pick up and return of dry cleaning items at this location due to staffing issues at the Decorah Cleaners.

Library Dinnerware

In the Library there is a display of dinnerware with "LIBRARY" stamped on the items. We are looking for more information on the history of these items. Maybe they were used for the Tuesday Study Club and possibly purchased around 1950. If you have any information on these dishes, please contact the library at 964-2119 and talk with one of the librarians.
