In Memory Of

This page serves as a tribute to volunteers who gave their time to the library. 


Ashley Dietrich


Ashley Dietrich had been a volunteer in the children’s library since 2001 when she passed away on September 13, 2009. Ashley had a smile on her face every moment she was in the library. She enjoyed watching the children’s excitement when they would see all of the books, puppets and DVDs they could borrow to take home. She loved reading children’s books and her favorites were Good Night Moon, Make Room for Ducklings, and Charlotte’s Web. Volunteering in the children’s library was a natural fit for Ashley.


The 2013 Summer Reading Celebration was made possible by a memorial donation in celebration of Ashley's life.



Bob Kiner


Bob Kiner was one of the founding community members of the East Pennsboro Branch Library. Bob and his wife Thelma felt strongly about the importance of a library and wanted to give back to the East Pennsboro community. For over 20 years, appointments and meals in the Kiner family were scheduled around their Tuesday evening volunteer time. Bob’s true talent was covering books. He prided himself with taking a new book and, with the utmost precision, preparing the book for everyone to use. Many in the East Pennsboro community made it a point to visit the library on the night Bob and Thelma volunteered. With the help of others, their vision made the East Pennsboro Branch Library a community gathering center.  Bob Kiner passed away Sunday, September 26, 2010.

Kay Wolf


Kay was a staff member of the West Shore Library where she worked at the circulation desk. She could often be seen marching in the Memorial Day Parade as part of the Book Cart Drill Team. Once Kay retired, she continued to support the library by volunteering. She overcame the challenge of learning the computer in order to check in materials and help the library. Kay was known to have a contagious smile and a lively disposition. Volunteers, staff and patrons were always delighted when Kay would tell a story or share a memory. Kay Wolf passed away on July 23, 2012. She will be missed.



Linda Wevodau


Linda was one of the original volunteers of the East Pennsboro Branch Library. As time progressed, she continued to give back to her community by working in a variety of library staff positions including Branch Director. Linda always greeted every patron by name. At the annual Pumpkinfest Friends of East Pennsboro Branch Library Book Sale, Linda was present from dawn until dusk. She tirelessly helped to raise funds for the branch library. Linda Wevodau passed away on April 12, 2011.  She will be remembered as someone who cared deeply about the Branch and about the patrons she served.



Ralph Romberger


Ralph Romberger volunteered at Fredricksen for over 20 years doing a variety of tasks from carding books to organizing magazines. Side-by-side with his wife, Jo, they worked together giving back to their community. Ralph passed away on April 21, 2010.
