Letter: Recognizing the work of Beverly Holmes Hughes

The Sugar Grove Library District and the village of Sugar Grove have enjoyed 22 years of encouragement, support and volunteerism from Library Director Beverly Holmes Hughes. Beverly is recognized as a community partner and leader. Modest, unassuming and eminently practical, she embodies the characteristics of a good librarian, colleague and friend. Her sense of humor and unique perspective gave others a different way of viewing the world.

The Sugar Grove Library District has lost a great friend of literature, reading, history, culture and the arts … and many of us as individuals could simply say we are losing a great friend.

This unattributed quote sums up our loss: “For those who know her, no words are necessary. For those who do not know her, words will not suffice.”

There is a Sugar Grove Library Board Meeting on Thursday, July 28, at 7 p.m. at the Sugar Grove Library, 125 Municipal Drive, Sugar Grove. I encourage all Library District residents to attend this meeting.
