Farewell and Thank You to Laura Gang
It is with sadness that we say farewell and thank you to outgoing Friends’ president Laura Gang. Under Laura’s leadership, momentum for branch renovations bloomed, a community-wide reading program was launched, Rozzie Reads Poetry was born, and outreach and awareness for the library grew. So did Friends’ membership, and our budget. We’ve added comfortable seating, decorated the shelves and added curtains. The Roslindale branch is better for having Laura as Friends’ president. Thank you, Laura.
Sarah Singer, incoming President
