Franklin Branch (Washington)

"Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name
And they’re always glad you came…"
“Cheers” theme song
by Gary Portnay

Yes, that’s the Franklin Branch of the Warren County Library. Nothing has changed but our hours, so don’t despair! Look at the bright side; we actually increased our Saturday hours! We are still holding wonderful programs for all ages, young and old and our collection of CDs, DVDs, books, etc. is growing in leaps and bounds! Even with this “glitch” at our branch, we want to make sure our valuable patrons are being served to the best of our ability, with the service they so deserve. So, “Cheers” to our public and their loyalty. As the song goes, “they’re always glad you came.
