library means to us - thank you, all!
The Library Receives a Wonderful Bequest

Our sincere gratitude to the late Mr. Henry Willard for his extraordinary
bequest of $100,000 to our library. Says Board President Terry Kramer, "The Willard family stands out for its longstanding and sustained engagement, as well as its interest in stewardship, which has helped shape the library’s commitment to service in the community. We were humbled and grateful to receive the Willard bequest to the library. This generous bequest is not just for the library, it is for everyone who reads, dreams and imagines - those who are always in search of something more. We will do incredible things with it.”
