Any Library Cat's Friend, To Be Sure
Librarian and MPL Director Bonita Marley (1906-2002) retired in April 1984, and even though I have enjoyed nine lives (and more to boot), I never met this great lady from Mooresville, Indiana. She would have invited moi to be the Library's feline roving reporter, I'll venture. She probably would have assigned a special spot inside the Library for moi when I visited. She welcomed everybody at the Library.
Read all about it in the Library's Treasure Trove blog posting, in which we're celebrating the Library's centennial anniversary.
Did you know that Mrs. Marley designed Mooresville's official town banner (flag) to celebrate the town's founding in 1974? Now you do. Read all about that by clicking here. You may see the banner itself by visiting the MPL
Indiana Roving Reporter Room. The flag is on permanent display in one of the glass wall display cases.
The Library's Bonita C. Marley Community Room is available for public use by patrons and local organizations or groups. Click here for more information.

P.S. "Helping Hand," by Ed Rashed, is a song about the power of helping others. Mrs. Marley would have liked that message. Click here to listen to an MP3 recording of the song, which appeared on the CD Wrong Side of the Door (2001).
