In Memoriam

The Friends of the Irvington Library mourn the recent passing of Dr. Mary Evans. Mary was a longtime active member of the Friends and sat on the Board of Directors for many years. Anyone who has ever come to a Friends Book Sale will remember Mary’s welcoming presence, the interest she showed in all who came her way, and the pleasure she took in talking with the children in particular.

If you would like to make a contribution to the Friends in Mary’s memory you may use the Donate button below or mail your donation to Friends of the Irvington Library, 12 S. Astor Street, Irvington, NY 10533.
