Hollis Center Public Library

Following her resignation, we would like to thank Caroline for her four years of service as Director of the Hollis Center Public Library and we wish her well in her next endeavor.

Please stop in to meet and welcome our new Library Director, Gus Hedden. Gus comes to us with over 30 years of Library experience, most recently as Director of the Parsons Memorial Library in Alfred. You may have last seen him pushing a book cart in the Alfred Festival Parade!

We hope to make this transition as seamless as possible and appreciate your patience and support during this time.
