THE POWER OF WORDS!

The library recognizes Banned Book Week September 24-30, 2017.  Your words have the power to challenge censorship.  Out of the hundreds of challenges ALA records every year, only about 10% of the books are removed from communal shelves, thanks to local literary champions such as librarians, students and patrons.

Grace Mary “Sue” Koepsel served as the director for the Fontana Public Library for 50 yrs.  She was especially proud of her work spearheading a renovation of the library in 80’s.  Sue served as the village historian after retiring from the director’s position, and was named Fontana Citizen of the Year.

We are honored that the family asked that memorials be made to the library in Sue’s name, which we will be used for further growth and development.
