In honor of Debbi Rodahaffer’s years of service to our church and especially the children, three of your librarians have made a special gift in appreciation of her work among us. Lee Fletcher, Tyler Goldberg and Kathy Bowling made a donation to the Community Preschool and commissioned Lauren Becker to make a painting of Debbi’s favorite children’s books. The list of her favorite books were obtained in a casual conversation during a meeting with her this past summer. Of course, she had no idea of the purpose of her being asked to name her favorite books.
Her favorite books are:
Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White
Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister
Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown
Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
All of her favorite books are available for checkout in the library.
The painting with a plaque noting its title and her years of service is hanging at the children’s collection in the library and in this way, Debbi will always be a part of the St. Matthew’s library.
