The Enid Jobson Memorial Reading Garden will be dedicated Friday, June 26, at a ceremony open to the public.

ESSEX — Enid Jobson passed away in July of 2013.  Though she was not an Essex native, she embraced her adopted community, particularly the Essex Library, and is warmly remembered by the staff for her sparkling eyes, perpetual smile, and affectionate “Hello cookie!” greeting that she habitually bestowed on them all.  She was a Library volunteer for many years in a variety of roles including a stint as Secretary of the Board of Trustees.

The Library was extremely pleased that one way Enid’s family chose to honor her memory was by endowing the recently installed Enid Jobson Memorial Reading Garden.  The Garden is located on the West Avenue side of the building, and is accessible from the old front entrance to the Library.  Visitors to it are be able to curl up with a good book, use the Library wi-fi connection, or just take a few moments to relax and enjoy the outdoors on a pleasant day.

A dedication ceremony will be held in the Garden on Friday, June 26, at 3 p.m.  The general public is invited to join members of Enid’s family a come together to remember her and pay tribute to her many years of service to the community.
