    My husband, Al, and I have found Dennis a wonderful asset to the library, and especially to the Patrons of the Library, whose projects and meetings he has always accommodated efficiently and graciously. Indeed, I once told him that I see him so frequently when I am in the library I could provide him with an alibi if anyone ever accused him of not being there when needed. We wish you well, Dennis, though it’s hard to think of the library without you. Martha Vogeler
