The Mendon Public Library Board of Trustees met with and thanked the members of Julie A. Dye’s family for the honor of naming the circulation desk in her name this past December.
Julie A. Dye was a proud Honeoye Falls resident, active community member, frequent library patron, passionate reader and devoted grandmother. Her family, including her daughters: Cheryl Krall; Cindy Cannon; Sandy Smith; and Laurie Miller, decided a gift to support the Mendon Public Library in their mother’s name, would be a fitting tribute to such a special woman.
Molly Ortiz, President of the Mendon Public Library Board of Trustees thanked the family for their generous gift. “The circulation desk is where we connect with our patrons. We are honored to connect with Mrs. Dye’s legacy and forever connect her to this community by naming our circulation desk in her name.”
Additionally, Nancy Holtby, Co-President of the Friends of the Mendon Public Library, stressed the importance of Mrs. Dye’s ongoing contributions to our community. “We are extremely thankful to Mrs. Dye and her family for supporting our mission to promote literacy, encourage a love of books, and foster the use of library services,” Nancy said. “Mrs. Dye loved our community and was a frequent visitor to our library over the years. We are humbled that her family chose to remember this wonderful woman with such a fitting tribute.”
A plague signifying the circulation desk named in honor of Julie A. Dye has been installed in the library along with a brick honoring Mrs. Dye in the brick garden, and a book list that offers patrons a variety of gardening books for folks of all ages who want to make the world a brighter place.
