It is with great sadness that I report the passing of Rod Kendig, Chairman of the WFPL Board of Governance. Under Rod’s leadershipthe library made numerous advances in a short period of time. His ability to bring people together in support of a common cause, the clarity he brought to issues, his warm personality, and his great intelligence will be missed. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. Information on services will be provided as they become available.
