Dedication of the J. Peter Scolforo Gallery at the Lee Library

The Board of Directors of the Lee Library Association honored retiring President, J. Peter Scolforo, by naming the Gallery in his honor. Peter served on the board for more than 30 years, and for the last 20 years, as the President. The dedication took place on December 3, 2008.

Peter initiated applying for a grant in the 1970’s which made it possible for the library to build the addition. He also served as the chair of the building committee. That addition houses the gallery, the Children’s Room, a reading area, and space for the stacks. This is a fitting tribute, because without Peter’s leadership, the gallery and addition would not exist.
