HELEN J. MARGET COMMUNITY ROOM NAMING CEREMONY
The Sigourney Public Library was honored to host the family and friends of Helen J. Marget. To honor Helen's memory, the Library Board of Trustees has named our beloved community room in her name, the Helen J. Marget Community Room.
The Sigourney News Review article states:
"Marget, who died April 1, 2021, just nine days short of her 90th birthday, was an iconic supporter and advocate for the new library that was erected in Sigourney in 2005. Her efforts, smile and love of books has not been forgotten.
“The meeting room is really the hub for many of our activities,” said Kelly. “Many groups and organizations use the room for meetings and trainings.
It is those types of activities that would warm Marget’s heart. Nearly all of her descendants, 35 in total, met recently to see the community room adorned with a plaque, commissioned painting and the name of the woman who was a central figure in ensuring Sigourney and Keokuk County had access to the written word and the many facets a library can offer a community."
“This room is a work in progress, and we are so blessed to have so many organizations that are willing to award us grants or donate money, along with the memorial money received, towards making it the best we can make it for the community, '' said Kelly."
