McDONOUGH – Since opening its doors for the first time in the summer of 2008, the McDonough Library and Calvary Community Center has proven to be a an enormous asset in a small town.
The library, which relies on the support of volunteers, operates as a branch of the Oxford Memorial Library. After the passing of the late Elinore Troicke, who was an instrumental figure in establishing the library and community center, volunteer staffers have been working together to run a tight-knit operation, said McDonough librarian Judy Lucier, who has been a volunteer there since issuing the first McDonough Library card nearly four years ago.
“A lot of people come in once a week and leave with a stack of books,” said Lucier. “We see a lot of regular patrons in here. It’s an important place to them.”
