WU Library holding Classic Car Show

Team Leader Kris Lanham was honored on July 7 for her service to the North Adams Library.

On Tuesday, July 7, the Friends of the North Adams Library held a reception in recognition of library Team Leader Kris Lanham. Kris has worked at the North Adams Library since 2001, when the library was housed in the Seaman Community Building, and was closely involved in the organizing and opening of the new North Adams Library building in 2013. Many patrons and staff know Kris as the face of the North Adams Library, as she helps patrons at the desk, leads weekly children’s Story Times and organizes annual Summer Reading events. This will be Kris’s last Summer Reading Program at the North Adams Library, as she is moving back to her home area. Stop by the North Adams Library until July 16 to wish Kris well, and write a greeting in our farewell album. The Adams County Public Library Board and staff will miss Kris, and wish her all the best in her move.
