Albert Church Brown Memorial Library
A Dedication
The Schoonover Community Room
on Sunday, July 26th 2015
at 4 o’clock in the afternoon


The Trustees welcome you to the dedication of The Schoonover Community Room, named in memory of longtime patrons and supporters Bob and Mae Schoonover. 

The conversion of this room to a spacious, bright and airy meeting room, with ample seating and state-of the art audio-visual equipment, is made possible through the generosity of members of the Schoonover family who are summer residents of China.  The room will be available for the enjoyment and use of the community.

In addition to the dedication, the program will include a presentation by Donna Loveland about her recent travels to Nepal.  Loveland, a former teacher at China Primary School, traveled to Nepal in 2014.  She will share her images and impressions of this beautiful country.  

 Event is free and open to the public.  Refreshments will be served.




With the renovations and improvements happening at the library this winter and spring, events and programming have been put on hold.  Check back soon for events and programming happening this summer!
