Hello Grafton, my name is Heidi Fowler. I am the new Reference Librarian at the Grafton Public Library and I am currently serving as the Interim Director. The former Director, Hilding Hedberg, retired near the end of the summer. An active search is in progress to find his successor.
I wanted to take a second to thank everyone for making me feel welcome here in Grafton. I have really enjoyed meeting everyone at the library.
I also wanted to share our good news.
Recently a concern was raised about the possibility of mold in the Children's Room. In response to this concern, we hired a certified mold inspector to investigate and I am very happy to report that the results showed that though there were some mold spores, there was no active mold in the Children's Room. In fact, the results showed that on the day of the inspection, the air quality was better inside the Children's Room than it was outside the building!
In other good news, we recently hired a new Children's Librarian. Jennifer Mentzer filled the vacancy left by the retirement of our previous Children's Librarian, Amanda Diurba. Amanda continues to be involved in the Library and is now serving as a Library Trustee. Jennifer has a full complement of wonderful Children's activities planned. She has also created a lovely collection of Caldecott Medal winners, organized by the year the book won. Please stop by the Children's Room to meet Jennifer and learn more.
