W/M Rotary hears from librarian

Recently Rotarian Tom Berkhouse introduced Amy Stephenson who talked about the children’s program at the Patterson library.

The Westfield/Mayville Rotary Club has strongly supported the Patterson Library for many years.

“We appreciate your group for many reasons,” said Stephenson, a youth services librarian at Patterson since 1990.

She explained about the library’s six-week summer program that started some years ago and “is still going strong.” She believes the greatest need for all programs is having updated books.

A graduate of Akron (Ohio) University with a B.A. in family and child development with some post-grad work in administration of child care facilities, she also works part time for her husband, Grant Stephenson, the family doctor in Ripley. They moved to this area in 1983 from Akron. Their children, Luke and Lyra, are students at Westfield Academy and Central School.
