The Erie Island Library is bidding a fond farewell to retiring Erie Island librarians, Muriel Sneller and Barb Cooper. They have received many cards and letters during their career from students and patrons. A retirement party was held in their honor on December 21st and they had many of these cards and letters present. We wish both of them the best in their retirement years.
