Special to the Express
The Holmes Public Library in Halifax celebrated National Library week last Friday, and also honored the last day of their popular Children’s Resource Librarian, Holly Ianucci Slawson, who has accepted the position of Children’s Librarian at the Kingston Public Library, in her home town.
The Friends of the Holmes treated library staff to cupcakes, cookies, and other goodies, in addition to giving each a lovely pink Kalanchoe plant, a breath of spring.
Below, Miss Holly was presented a favorite book, “Loud Mouse”, that will feature a bookplate noting that the book was given to the Library in her honor. Friends member Bob Hodge presented the book, that was signed by the two authors, sisters Cara and Idina Menzel from Frozen and Broadway fame, and the illustrator, Jaclyn Sinquett. Hodge was also Miss Holly’s high school assistant principal at Silver Lake Regional High.
