Syracuse Public Library will hold a public remembrance for Becky Brower from 4-6 p.m. Monday, July 24, in its Community Roots outdoor space.
For decades, Brower had been a major proponent of lifelong learning at the library. She touched the lives of many people who came through the library's doors with creative programs, an infectious sense of humor and acts of kindness.
Everyone is welcome to come and go from the remembrance as they need to. During it, attendees can share their memories of Brower and talk with each other. Library staff have put together a slideshow, which will play throughout the remembrance. The Friends of the Syracuse Public Library will also serve cookies and refreshments.
The library will close early at 4 p.m. on July 24 so staff can attend the remembrance.
Becky Brower Memorial Fund
Additionally, a Becky Brower Memorial Fund has been started. Those interested in donating toward that fund can make checks payable to the Syracuse Public Library and mention the Becky Brower Memorial Fund in the memo line.
For information, contact the library at (574) 457-3022.
Syracuse Public Library loves connecting our patrons with the materials they want, including bringing some from other libraries in the Evergreen network and beyond. Recently, how these Evergreen Indiana items arrive at the Syracuse Public Library has changed.
The Indiana State Library has changed the transit company that was used by all Indiana libraries to send and receive materials. With any change, there is a transitionary period, which may result in some holds taking longer to be received.
The Syracuse Public Library asks everyone to have patience during this transition. Over time, hold times should be reduced.
