A Lovely Legacy

Recently we held a memorial in the Children's Room at the Library for Judith Harbison who had volunteered here a few years back. Judith, who was a lover of books and a voracious reader, passed away a few months ago and her husband and children chose to have their mother and wife remembered by asking friends and extended family to donate to our library in her memory. The family requested that all gifts be given to the Children's Dept. I was the person who managed this memorial and I can tell you that hardly a day went by for an entire month that I did not receive a gift in memory of Judith. Even now, over three months after Mrs. Harbison has passed, we are still receiving gifts in her memory. Not only is our Children's Dept. still benefitting from the thoughtfulness and generosity of her family, but also all the children who are using the library now and will continue to use the library for a long, long time.

What A Lovely Legacy!
