In Memoriam Patricia Lowell
We are saddened to announce the death of Patricia Lowell, our longtime reference librarian, whose warm smile, skill at answering questions, and flair for fashion were legendary. Patricia passed away on May 23 at home with her family. Library staff, volunteers, and patrons will miss her charm, wit, and suggestions for the next great read.

Notice of special hours: The Library will be closed on the morning of Wednesday, June 1, so that staff and volunteers may attend Patricia's funeral service. We will open at 1 p.m.
