Improvements to the MFPL

In 2016, the MFPL adopted its first-ever 3-year strategic plan.  That plan outlines a number of goals that were developed with input from the community.  One of the most common requests was to update the facility.  In keeping with that request, the library has been working on a number of projects in 2017.
