The Anita Wilson Memorial Family Concert Series
The Friends of the Library Advisory Board established a Memorial Concert Series to honor long time library volunteer, Anita Wilson who passed away in 2021. Anita was a Friend of the Library since the late 1970's and was on the Advisory Board most of that time. If you visited the Childers's Section at any of our book sales during the last 20 years, you likely were helped by Anita. She combined her love of children and her love of libraries to work tirelessly for both by overseeing the children's books, working year round to sort and pack books in preparation for the sale and then she worked the sale itself. Anita was also a fierce supporter of the libraries, advocating both at the local level and state level for funding and support of libraries for all. She will always be remembered for her kindness, her volunteerism, her love of children, her love of libraires and this concert series is way for the Friends to honor and remember her.
If you would like to donate to the Anita Wilson Memorial Family Concert Series, checks can be made out to the Friends of the Lucy Robbins Welles Library with Anita Wilson Memorial in the memo line and dropped off or mailed to the library.
