The recent Pemberton Library’s AGM (Jan. 22) marked the retirement of several of our trustees, including chair Marnie Simon. Known for her diligence and commitment to volunteer serve, Marnie was a vital member of our board who helped set the course of the library for eight years. She saw the library through many transitions and worked tirelessly to ensure we were moving in a positive direction. Marnie will be greatly missed.
Joining Marnie in leaving the board were Doug Helmer, Pat Mackenzie and Dennis Powell. We wish to thank all of these people for their time and effort in making our library the hub of the community.
We also wish to thank our newly elected board members, Adam Adams, Marc Cousineau, Tracy Graham and Monique Midgely for deciding to join us in helping create an exceptional library. They will join returning trustees Cindy Filipenko, Carolyn McBain, Karen Tomlinson and Margo Vaughn, whose contributions over the past year have been greatly appreciated. And finally, we wish to express our gratitude to our library director Emma Gillis for all the work she does to support the trustees.
We look forward to another incredible year at the library.
Chair of the PDPL Board
