Plumb Library dedicates new memorial bookcase

Every time people visit the Plumb Memorial Library they may notice many changes taking place. In addition to the renovations currently underway, new items are being added to the library.

The newest addition is a memorial bookcase honoring library volunteer JoAnn Patters, who died last year. Patters was a tireless library worker, who not only assisted with all the book sales in the library but also attended library programs. She often assisted with the children's programs.  “Patters’ support of the library and her willingness to do any task that was needed was balanced with her wit and humor,” said library Director Joan Stokes.

A special scholarship has also been set up in her honor and has had its first recipient has been named. This is an annual scholarship offered by the Shelton Friends of the Library.
