In Remembrance of Joann Muscardin

on Fri, 10/24/2014 - 19:25


To honor our friend and colleague Joann, we have been compiling a book of memories of her time at the Library to be sent to her family. Please consider sharing a favorite memory or story of your family with Joann as a tribute to her. Children are invited to contribute a letter or picture, as well. Any photos that you would like to share can be copied and returned to you. 

We would like to present this memory book to her family for the holidays, so we ask that you please bring in your contribution by December 1. As always, we thank you for your support and concern.
