To the Editor:
Thank you to everyone who helped make Marion’s Elizabeth Taber Library’s 2015 Book Sale a success. Led by Nita Howland and Sue Schwager, who have tirelessly worked and promoted the event for many months (as well as many years), the Board of Trustees wanted to take this opportunity to thank all that helped this year. Remember, this is our library’s biggest fund-raiser and you all made it happen. Thank you to Nancy Rolli, Michelle Sampson, Charlene Sperry, Karilon Grainger, Marthe Soden, Betty Broome, Carol Houdelette, Diana Markle, Zora Turnbull Lynch, Beth Marsden, Kathy Feeney, Nicole Davignon, Gary Sousa, Stephen Carnazza and John Rolli. I also wanted to thank the Town of Marion’s Department of Public Works, who are always there to help transport our books back and forth from the book sale. Thank you all for making this a success. It is truly a town-wide initiative.
The Elizabeth Taber Library is funded in only two-thirds part by the Town of Marion, and the remaining one-third is through generous donations throughout the year and this book sale. Our goal for the library is for it to be much more than just a place to go check out books, but also a place to participate, face to face, in community activities in a way we can’t do over the internet. We want to make our library the center, or heartbeat if you will, of our town. With an energetic and intelligent Elisabeth “Libby” O’Neill at the helm, this library is going places. You have all helped us to continue to get closer to that goal, and we look forward to more initiatives in the future to keep our library progressing toward an even brighter future.
Jay Pateakos, President
ETL Board of Library Trustees
