The library staff and Trustees were saddened to learn of the passing of Mr. John Hallahan. As our library director for 25 years between 1966 and 1991 he was a founding member of MILC (Manchester Interlibrary Cooperative) which later became GMILCS, oversaw the creation of the West Branch, and made the Carpenter Memorial Library handicap accessible by overseeing the installation of a modern elevator. Mr. Hallahan helped to make the libraries what they are today by leading the way during his tenure. He was well loved by staff and patrons alike. He will be greatly missed by those of us at the Manchester City Library.
