Long-time Friend of the Library and former Treasurer of the Friends Mike Moss passed away this past July after an extended illness, and the Newbury Public Library, the Friends of the Newbury Public Library, and the Newbury Public Library Trustees have created a collection in his honor that reflects not only his dedication to early childhood literacy but his impact on the Newbury Library and the community. He and his wife Jane, our former Children’s Librarian of many years, have been champions of children’s literature, and we honor their dedication and service with this collection. Our earliest readers will be able to select books from the Mike Moss board book collection, featured in a brand new oak bookcase custom-made for the collection. We hope that you all will take a look at this brand new collection when you are next in the children’s room.
