Our librarian died last night. She is also the mother of one of my long time friends so I knew her from way back when. We are sad - all of us.
To the town's tribute, they lowered the flag in front of the library/city hall building and the library is closed. She really worked hard to maintain and grow the library, even though our town of 500 has few readers. She always helped us find the books we needed, invited the children to special programs, and always had treats for the children. She decorated for the seasons and hosted summer reading programs. She did a lot to brighten the library even though it is only open 1/2 days and never on Saturdays or Sundays. I will miss her and so will my children.
I wonder what will happen to the library?
