At the November 2018 LCMGA meeting, Julia Freeman presented a gift to Chris Warren, Library Director at the Auburn Public Library. The gift honors the speakers who present programs at the monthly meetings during the year. The librarian chooses a book relevant to the topic of each program. In the foreground of the photo are just a few of the beautiful and educational books we've donated in the past.
