Nelson Library Dedicates New Benches

The Olivia Rodham Memorial Library has been the recipient of two beautiful teak benches to welcome guests. On September 9, library trustees and patrons gathered to honor the donors. One bench was donated by Linda Singer in memory of her father, Herb Singer, who died earlier this year. Greg Rothman offered heartfelt comments and stories about his father-in-law, who spent the last five years of his life in Nelson, living with Greg and Linda and volunteering at community suppers and other events. A matching bench was given to the library by the Friends organization. Donna Kidd, president of the Friends, said proceeds from the annual book sale and membership fees go toward buying books, the new bike rack recently installed beside the library, and this year, the bench.

The trustees of the library thank Richard Popovic for his hard work installing the benches and the bike rack, Rob Germeroth for placing the dedication labels, the energetic Landscaping Committee for their work in beautifying the library grounds, and everyone who has contributed to the book sales and other activities of the Friends.
