Do not disrespect the man the library is named after, a former school president, by putting his statue between the toilets!

Thank you for your suggestion. We are proud to be named after William Walsh Hagerty, and we honor his memory. Renovations here at the library have been constant for many months now, and we have had to move our Hagerty bust several times to keep it safe from the possibility of damage. The bust is currently located in an area that it both safe from renovation and prominent. It is currently visible to all patrons as they walk through the building’s main entrance. We also have a painting of Hagerty, which is in protected storage until renovations are complete.
