On January 16, 2018 the Abbott Library Board of Trustees ratified Library Director Mindy Atwood’s decision to hire Justin Levesque for Assistant Director of the Abbott Library. Justin has worked for the Abbott Library since May 2016. In his role as Library Aide he managed the library’s inter-library loan (ILL) service, selected items for the DVD and music collections, led book group discussions and initiated a new “movie group” at the library. Stop in and congratulate Justin on his new position!

To The Abbott Library Community:

It is with great sadness that I inform the Abbott Library community of the passing of John Wilson on July 5, 2017.

John was a passionate and devoted supporter of our library. He was instrumental in raising the private funds to construct the new library building and continued to be involved with the maintenance and enhancement of the library at its new site. John would finish one task and move on to the next with his “sure, we’ll get it done” positive attitude.

John always entered the library with a smile which showed his love and passion for the new library; his energy and enthusiasm were contagious.

John will be greatly missed by the Trustees, the Abbott Library Foundation, the Friends of the Abbott Library and the Abbott Library Staff.

Our thoughts and best wishes are with his wife, Jeanne, and their family. Please follow this link for a full account of the truly remarkable life of John Wilson.
