Our beautiful little bench in front of the Millicent Window is back with us after being rejuvenated. Funding for the restoration was donated in memory of Florence Goulart Brower, a well-known and beloved area educator with many accomplishments.
If you missed the four or five real Snowy Owls who spent the winter in Fairhaven this year, you can see what you missed when you visit the library. Rene Manny has donated a life-sized carving of an owl on her nest in the Arctic Tundra. It’s by a Canadian artist, Sylvain Forest. You can study up on owls on the Birds of North America database if you have a Fairhaven library card.
Herbert Jenney painting
Come and see the library’s newest acquisition, a portrait of Henry H. Rogers’ childhood friend, Herbert Jenney. Jenney grew up in Fairhaven, studied abroad and practiced law in Cincinnati. He gave one of the dedication speeches for the Rogers School. The painting, done in the 1840s, was donated by his descendant, Starbuck Smith III.
