In memory

PARIS – The Paris Public Library recently received a donation for $2,500 in memory of Doris Parker from Stephen and Geraldine Ricci of Arlington, Mass.

Area resident and supporter of libraries, Parker died in December. Her mother, Joan Parker, is children’s librarian at the Paris Public Library.

The library’s staff and trustees are discussing with Doris’ son, Adam, and other family members about how the gift may best be used.
