I came to Eagle to be the library director in August of 2005. One of the first to welcome me to the library and community was Mabel Finney. I'd like to share two things that I learned from Mabel Finney. Mabel Finney always could be counted on. She "showed up" -- she came to many library programs (even Wii Bowling), helped with book sales, helped serve hot dogs for the summer library program Lunch Bunch each summer, made more pots of coffee than I can count and baked on numerous occasions, served as a Friend of Alice Baker Library, etc. Mabel always asked me how I was doing when she came in the library and also asked about Liberty, my Miniature Schnauzer. Mabel had a beautiful smile and lit up the library when she came into it. Mabel also taught me about hospitality. The Oxford Dictionary definition of hospitality is "the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers." When I was a relatively new director, Mabel and I were setting up for a program together. It was very important to her to make the tables look nice. She knew how to fold napkins and lay out everything perfectly. She assured me that I would always have the support of the Friends of the Alice Baker Library for hospitality. Mabel was loved by many and will be missed but not forgotten.
