A warm room filled with love set the stage for the late Lori Barnes’ memorial dedication ceremony at McCord Memorial Library last week. As friends gathered to share in the commemoration of her memory on April 15th, a magazine shelving unit was dedicated in the name of Lori Barnes, made possible through countless donations from the community in her name. Notable attendees included Lori’s husband, Jim Barnes and his family, several members of the “Friends of the Library”, McCord Library staff/Board members, and numerous members of the North East community.


Lori was recently awarded the “Volunteer of the Year” award in 2014, served as a Board of Directors member for several years, held the Vice-Presidential office at the library, and was a founding member of the “Friends of the Library” group; where she served as historian and president.


This memorial was one the final projects she was involved with and members of the library take pride in the notion that she would be elated to see this project blossom into fruition.
