    The Wytheville Morning Rotary Club has done “library clean up” for the past several years. We rake leaves, trim bushes, and spread mulch to make the library more appealing to the incoming patrons. We would like to join with the Wytheville Noon club and do modifications to the current plant life and repaint the sign. This will give the outside of the library an updated look and make it more inviting to patrons.
