Lake Peekskill resident Harris Mandel passed away suddenly last week. A dedicated former library trustee (and regular library patron), Mr. Mandel, along with his wife Bobby, was an active board member who helped with financial planning for the library, as well as at our book sales. He also designed our old library logo which you see here, and created a street map of Lake Peekskill, which we still use in the library.
Over the years, Mr. Mandel crafted various items from wood for the library to sell at fundraisers, including toaster tongs, bookstands for holding a book open, and a set of giant legos we raffled off. He was a wonderful man and will be missed.
