I recently received email from Carol
Maderic, a former Winnsboro resident and active member of the Friends
of the Library. Carol and
her husband, Dan, moved to Virginia when Dan transferred from Mack to
the Volvo plant there.
I wanted to share a few of Carolís
comments with you. She
ďI really miss the library in
Winnsboro. Itís just
not the same here and I donít look forward to going to this library.
...you would be appalled at the lack
of selection on the shelves and the condition of some of the things we
have taken out.
...if you ever need testimony to how good your library is, please, let
me know. Iím not sure the
powers-that-be in Winnsboro and
Fairfield know what a gem they have.
Keep up the good work.
Please tell your staff and the
Friends hello and I miss all of you.
Thanks for all your good work.Ē
As Carol has discovered, good
libraries donít just happen. They
need hard work by dedicated staff, financial support from county and
state, and moral support from a local community.
In Fairfield County, we are lucky to have all three of those
ingredients working for us.
As always, feel free to reach me by
phone (803 635-4971) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
