I can't say enough how much i enjoyed the company of Eileen Pinter the chief librarian and Paula Brown her assistant through the past 10 yrs of anniversaries. Eileen always baked some cookies for me and i always look forward to snacking on them while at the library taking a quick break. I remember Eileen saying many years ago she probably would not see the Coal mine disaster 100th anniversary, well she made it!
