Sad news

Patricia C. Lamar passed away last night in Oxford. She was the first female Alderman in Oxford and served as mayor from 1997 to 2001. But before that she was the first president of LOCAL (Lafayette & Oxford Citizens Acting for the Library) that in 1977 helped us get the beautiful building we are in now. She also worked hard to get us the addition that we so desperately needed as our collections grew.

 Those of us who worked at the library during her time as mayor and before  remember her as an ardent supporter of the public library. She will be missed and we offer her family our deepest sympathies.
