Congratulations go out to the community of Hantsport, Susan Oickle-Shano and all the Friends of the Hantsport Public Library.
Dedication, perseverance, hard work, or in others words, plain old community spirit were the catch phrases of the day September 23, 2015. After being a tenant for more than 50 years in the Hantsport School, the Isabel and Roy Jodrey Memorial Library officially opened its doors.
The weather couldn’t have been better as approximately 130 guests gathered in front of the former Hantsport Legion at 10 Main Street. A smudging ceremony, greetings and congratulations from invited dignitaries preceded the official unveilings and ribbon cutting by Roy Bishop and other family members of Isabel and Roy Jodrey.
Guests were greeted by branch manager, Liz Gibson as they enjoyed refreshments, and live music as they toured the newly renovated facility.
“We are so pleased to present this new facility to the community,” said Ann-Marie Mathieu, the new CEO of Annapolis Valley Regional Library. “Hantsport should be proud of this library that so many people worked to create.
Stop by and see the newest addition to the community.
