On Sunday, April 30th, the library was pleased to host the 2023 Timothy Mumford Memorial Poetry Competition Awards Ceremony. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to the Mumford family for their continued generous support of the library in memory of their son, a former Library Page who was a creative poet and talented musician and composer.
Our judges, Mr. Robert Milby, Mr. Walter Worden and Ms. Andrea Brandt, once again beautifully executed the monumental task of choosing the top poems for each category. We cannot thank them enough for their commitment to this important work. This year, 31 young people (23 girls; 8 boys) submitted 45 poems to the competition for consideration. We continue to marvel at the creativity we see in their inspiring submissions and look forward to what the future holds for each of these imaginative souls. Well done and thank you to all!
