MEDINA – The Lee-Whedon Memorial Library would like to announce the retirement of “Mrs. Mac” – our beloved Children’s Librarian for the past 22 years.

Suzanne McAllister has worked at the library since 1996, first as a library aide and then as the Children’s Librarian. Mrs. Mac, as she is known to her many, many children, has touched the lives of thousands of children every year.

Suzanne’s personality and passion were infectious – her story time programs often filled with laughter and smiles. Throughout the years Suzanne has contributed immensely to the library family whether dressing up as Clifford the Big Red Dog or Doctor Who for LibraryCon. She organized teddy bear sleepovers, invited all sorts of wildlife into the building, and rode out into the community on her bike-mobile to give away books.

Due to Covid-19, a large party to honor her cannot be held. However, the community is welcome to come in this week to show their appreciation. Please join us in wishing Suzanne the very best in the next chapter of her life!
