Allow me to cook for you!

Our Library is Great!!!

This is the Greatest Town Ever!
So many great things come from our people here. There was NARCAN training here and 17 people became Certified Overdose Responders. This was such a wonderful training and these people are now prepared to help those in need. Thank you so much for giving your time and selves to our community!!!
Secondly, Since the Library has been running the World Community Grid and helping with the research for cancer and ebola, we have done a great deal. We reached a diamond status for cancer research. This means since "Puter Dave" set this up in December of 2014, our little library has completed 5 years worth of research for cancer. We also received a bronze rating for the ebola research. My mother always said "dynamite comes in small packages" and that is the case with Ripley. We may be small, but we can do so much!!! Be Proud Ripleyites!!!
