The Children’s Program Room, located at the Crown Point Library, has been renamed to the Sharon Greening Children’s Program Room. Sharon was a beloved mother, spouse, grandmother, educator, and friend. As an avid, respected teacher and lover of all kids and animals, Sharon inspired countless students to achieve their dreams, overcome obstacles in their young lives, and attain a lifelong love for books and reading. The memorial gift of $10,000 donated by the Birdzell family, in her memory, will be used to perpetuate Sharon’s devotion and dedication to early reading programs for all children and continue to impact the lives of the children of the community.
Please join us for the dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony to honor the memory of Sharon Greening and celebrate this donation on Saturday, April 6 at 11 a.m. at the Crown Point Community Library.
