It was “Christmas in July” at the Palermo Community Library’s recent annual meeting. The scene was festive with a garland of twinkling Christmas lights strung around the refreshment table and a fire blazing on the large screen TV. Joan Robertson donated a Christmas-themed quilt to the library which was hung in the children’s area. Local students had used crayons to color preprinted drawings on fabric squares which were then pressed to set the pigments. The squares were sewn together by Joan Robertson and the piece was finished off with machine quilting by award-winning quilter Diane Dixon.

The library is located at 2789 Route 3. For more information call 993-6088 or email or visit
