“I have some big shoes to fill,” said Emerson.

Her love for libraries began when she first moved to northern Ontario, Canada.

Now, Emerson says she loves working at the library as a way to give back to the community she calls home.

“I’ve lived in Geneseo for 30 years now but I’ve always worked outside of the community,” said Emerson. “So I’m really excited to have an opportunity to kind of give back to the community where I’ve enjoyed living and where my kids have grown up.”

The library plays host for many, many community speakers and organizations. A full calendar of upcoming community events is available here.

There will be a retirement celebration for Grace at Wadsworth Library on March 18 from 1 to 3 p.m.
