The Chautauqua County Legislature recently honored former Falconer Public Library Director Sue Seamans  with a commendation. Seamans served as the public library director for 44 years until her retirement last year. Lisa Vanstrom, Chautauqua County legislator, cited her efforts with the annual book sale, the Falconer summer band series, the annual National Endowment for the Arts Big Read event, the transition to an automated card system and the development of a braille collection for the visually impaired as examples of her work over her career. The Falconer Public Library was named one of America’s five star libraries by the Library Journal for 11 years under Seamans’ leadership. You can read the PostJournal article here.
