FOL History

2016 06 Berridge lunch (2).jpg

Joanne Berridge, long time member of the Friends of the Library, recently moved to College Station.  She will be greatly missed.  Joanne held several offices in the Friends including two terms as President.  She was very active in the organization and implementation of the Open Houses and Book Sales.  Joanne loved creating displays in the two display cases in the library.  She wrote a column for the Montgomery news too.  We all thank Joanne Berridge for her volunteerism, generosity, and love for the Stewart Branch of the Montgomery County Library.
