CANASERAGA — On Friday evening, Oct. 20, family and friends of Kathie Sleight gathered at the Essential Club Free Library on Pratt Street in Canaseraga. The reception was held to dedicate the Young Adult Room of the library in her memory.
Sleight was the beloved director of the library for over 20 years. She shared her passion of reading and books with many in the community, young and old. She was especially loved by the children who attended Story Hour, a program for young readers, each Monday morning.
The Board of Trustees honored Sleight's many years of service to the library and community, with a plaque that will be placed in her memory in the library. Board President Tina France gave the opening remarks and then opened the floor to anyone who wanted to share a story about their fond memories of Sleight.
Visitors were then allowed to take a tour of the Young Adult Room that now bears her name.
