Unity Town News

By Sonia Antunes | Nov 24, 2013




The library need your help folks! This year the town of Unity is requiring the Unity College Library to collect 78 signatures from Unity registered voters so they can request funding to support the public use of the library.  If you haven’t signed their petition yet, please do. The library is such a treasure for us and for our town.  There’s a petition form in the library and one also at Crosstrax. Thanks so much everyone! Happy Thanksgiving folks!
