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.
