The ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new Goff Public Library was attended by about one hundred people. The guests got to tour the library before heading outside for the ceremony. Mayor Mike Robertson began the ceremony with a description of how he and Clay Goff, who is chairman of the White County Regional Library Board,  worked to make the new library a reality. He stated how Clay had volunteered his dad, local realtor and land developer,  Leroy Goff, as contractor of the project. When Clay spoke he highlighted all the reasons that libraries are still important in our society and how this one will be used by so many people. It took lots of work and cooperation to get the new library.  A big thanks to the mayor, city council, Clay Goff, Leroy Goff and the library board who all worked together to obtain the funds to build the new library. The state-of-the-art building is a credit to the community and will be for years to come.  Goff Public Library branch manager Ramona Howell and asst. branch manager Dee Groves were on hand to welcome the guests.  Also speaking at the ribbon-cutting were White County Library director Darla Ino and State Librarian Carolyn Ashcraft.
