FAIRFIELD, Conn. - A year after the campaign began, the Friends of the Fairfield Public Library unveiled the refurbished and updated Memorial Room at the main library.

The room now includes panels honoring veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam and the Persian Gulf. With the help of local individuals, families and organizations more than $8,000 was donated to pay for the project.

“This event was a celebration of Fairfield history, area veterans and the public library,” said State Sen. Tony Hwang, a member of the Connecticut General Assembly’s Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. “It was an honor to take part in the ceremony, to highlight and remember the sacrifices of our veterans, and to commend the Friends for all they do for Fairfield.”

Interim Friends’ President Margo Kaminsky spoke at the Nov. 8 reception, thanking the 22 donors and highlighting the organization’s commitment and dedication to the Fairfield Public Library.

“The first time I saw this jewel of a room I was overwhelmed," said town librarian Karen Ronald. "I knew we needed to preserve and enhance its beauty for generations to come. Talented Fairfield artist Cynthia Davis and Patrick Ganino dedicated hours of their time and talent to ensure we did so. We are so proud of their work, the history of our town, the service of our veterans and the vital role the Library plays in our community.”
