Shippensburg Public Library

Library to be Renamed in Honor of Jeff Coy

We are pleased to announce that a generous donation has been given to the Shippensburg Public Library in honor of the late Jeff Coy, and the library will soon be renamed the Jeffrey W. Coy Public Library of Shippensburg. Jo Anne Coy shared that her husband, Jeff, was a humble man who often helped quietly and never expected recognition or thanks. “Now, as his wife, I want him to get his thanks and never be forgotten. This is my gift to him, not to be forgotten,” stated Jo Anne. Read more about this memorial gift here.
