News From The Sunfield Library

The Sunfield District Library is adding another service to their patrons! Thanks to a generous donation by Jackie Carr, in memory of her mother Dorothy Smith. The library will be starting a home delivery program. Those who are elderly, or unable to travel, can have items brought to them. The money donated was used to purchase an adult tricycle, and a custom-made book box was created and attached to the bike. The entire project was funded by the donation.

Dorothy was a longtime supporter of the library. Many might remember the pies that she made, every year, for the Friends Holiday Raffle. She was an avid reader with a great sense of humor. She always had a way of making library staff laugh. When Jackie approached the library about a way to honor her mother, the idea of the book mobile was hatched. Thus, “Dorothy’s Book Delivery” became a reality. Since Dorothy actually grew up in Kansas, tying it into the story “Wizard of Oz” made total sense. A flying house, complete with Toto in a basket, will be servicing the community.

The library is planning to start the weekly deliveries the middle of June. If anyone living within Sunfield village has need of the service, they are encouraged to contact the library. All pick-ups and deliveries will take place Thursdays, during regular library hours from 1pm to 7pm.

The added service is such a great way to support our patrons and community. The staff is extremely grateful for the opportunity to help in this manner. It would not be possible without Jackie’s generosity. With the custom bike, the library will truly be able to make “house calls”. The youthful and mischievous side of Dorothy is surely laughing and smiling “somewhere over the rainbow”.
