A community resource to share:

Have you heard about the Southern Adirondack Network Guide? { } We feel it's so important, that we've put a link to it on our library website and are sharing it wherever we can.

"The Southern Adirondack Network Guide (SANG) is a trusted resource for accurate, consistent, comprehensive, and unbiased social and human service information for the Southern Adirondack region of New York State."

*Funded by the Glens Falls Foundation and Crandall Public Library.
