We want to say how much our library family will miss our board president, George Schermerhorn, who died Dec. 8.
George has been on the library board for many years and was a great supporter of the library. His sense of humor and love of books will be remembered by all who knew him. He also loved to make puns to make us laugh.
Thank you, George, for all you have done for the library. We will miss you and think of you often.
We are starting a new year of programs and activities at the library.
