Introducing the David Thomas Newspaper Reading Area

At Penfield Public Library, our community is what gives our library life and we are fortunate to have developed many wonderful relationships with our patrons.

It cuts when we lose someone.

In 2023, one of our patrons, David Thomas, passed way. We have many memories of Mr. Thomas that make us smile and we often listened with mouths agape to stories of his life that we were certain belonged in a movie.

We fondly remember his near daily visits to PPL to, among other things, get caught up on current events via our newspapers. In light of this, the Thomas family has generously provided funds for a newspaper reading area and we cannot thank them enough for their kindness in celebrating Mr. Thomas' life with us.

We very much miss Mr. Thomas and having this lovely newspaper area is a welcome, sweet reminder of our friend. We join the Thomas family in the hope that you will enjoy reading here as much as Mr. Thomas did.
