City Library Dedicates Stained Glass Window to Jennifer Pugh
The following is an announcement from Martha Brogan, Director and City Librarian of the
New Haven Free Public Library " Many of you may have known long-time city employee Jennifer Pugh, who passed away in December after a 15-month battle with cancer. She was a gem and a huge advocate for NHFPL, particularly in her role as Deputy Chief Administrative Officer for the city. I am delighted to let you know that her friends decided to recognize her through the creation of a unique stained glass artwork panel depicting New Haven’s 9 Squares and chose to hang it in the new Ives Squared Cafe. The Library Board unanimously endorsed this wonderful tribute and an event in Jennifer’s memory and honor will be held at Ives on Monday evening, March 26th to which you are all invited. Attached is information that went out to all city employees about participating in and contributing to this tribute. It is a testimony to your dedicated work in the community that Jennifer—who knew of the tribute prior to her death—wanted the library to be the place of honor."
