To our patrons

The staff of Dennis Public Library would like to thank the many patrons who expressed their sympathy after the sudden and unexpected passing of Assistant Director and Adult Services Librarian Mary Fecteau on November 4th.

We are so appreciative of your thoughtful words, beautiful flowers, heartfelt poems, and other tributes that you have shared with us. You confirmed what we knew about Mary - that her kindness touched so many lives and made the patron experience here at Dennis Public Library so much better.

Keeping Mary in mind during this holiday season, we hope that you reach out to your loved ones and give them a little extra thanks and a little extra love. Our sincere best to you and yours.
