Under the guise of a Grand Reopening Ceremony for the Beach Haven Library, library staff and trustees staged a surprise Dedication Ceremony on July 12th for the new Eileen Mitchell Children’s Room, and we managed to keep it all a secret until the new plaque was unveiled!
Eileen Mitchell, our beloved Principal Library Assistant, has been the heart and soul of the library for almost 39 and a half years and has done anything and everything over all those years – processing our book and magazine orders, covering the circulation desk, answering our phones and making sure patrons can find everything they need.
Eileen always has a smile and a nice word, along with expert recommendations for books you might enjoy.
Please come visit the new Eileen Mitchell Children’s Room whenever you’re next in the library!
Many thanks to Eileen — you are a gem!
