Millie Loeb to Retire as Sherman Library Director

 

            

          

 

 

The Sherman Library Board of Trustees, with great appreciation for two decades of service, has announced the upcoming retirement of Executive Director Millie Loeb.

Millie has served as the library director since 1997, and she has filled her role with a passion for public libraries as a vital resource and a commitment to community service. She will leave behind a powerful legacy that includes keeping Sherman at the forefront of a rapidly changing library landscape.

One of Millie’s earliest accomplishments was to computerize the library’s circulation system and card catalog. But her most visible and enduring achievement is the beautifully renovated and expanded Sherman Library facility, a space designed to reflect the town’s historic past as well as embrace the future. Millie’s dedication to this project began in 1998, with an evaluation of the town’s need for additional library space. The project came to fruition in 2014, when the new and improved library opened its doors to the public.

Millie’s leadership of the last 20 years has resulted in a vibrant library community, a state-of-the-art facility, and solid financial footing. Her contributions are sure to attract a highly qualified candidate to continue to carry the torch forward when she leaves in mid-September.

The Library Board of Trustees has formed a search committee composed of board members along with several community members, with the goal of having a new executive director on board late this summer. The committee plans to survey the Sherman community about their wishes for the library moving forward.

Farm Roads – Photographs by Phyllis DiLeo


Art Show March 17 – April 26, 2018


                                      


Farm Road{s} Exhibit is a collection of treasured moments of reflection; each image was captured among the beautiful farms and rolling hills in and around the Sherman area. From the intricate sprout of a seed to the brilliance of a sunset over a meadow to the grin of a grazing goat.

Phyllis DiLeo of Ferris Photography is known for specializing in capturing the best of Westchester and Fairfield’s children and families. It has been her love of people and the great ability to put all at ease – from the youngest infant to the most reserved business executive to the family pet—that has been her greatest strength and the cause of her successful full service studio for 20 years.

Phyllis is thrilled to announce that she has now expanded her business to include her life long love of preserving moments in nature. Her collections include images captured throughout the years as well as her latest work inspired by her recent move to Sherman.
