A dedication of the community program room at the new West Tisbury Free Public Library was held in honor of the leadership and community support provided over many years by David and Rosalee McCullough. Mr. McCullough has served as West Tisbury Library Foundation honorary chairman since the Foundation’s inception in 2010. Over a hundred people came out on a rainy evening for the event.
Hunter Moorman, foundation chairman, welcomed the crowd and expressed his thanks for the hard work and financial contributions that made the new library possible.
West Tisbury selectman Richard Knabel remarked that the new library was an example of how private and public sectors can work together toward a mutual goal.
Dan Waters, library trustee, recalled the early days of planning the new library and the instrumental role David and Rosalee McCullough played in getting the project off the ground and bringing it to fruition.
Hunter Moorman presented Mr. McCullough with the symbolic key to the new library. In his remarks, Mr. McCullough expressed his faith in the national public library system, something that is unique to the U.S.
