The Palermo Community Library Board of Trustees express their deep appreciation for all the time and effort Sharon Nichols has dedicated to the library as a board member and chairman since 2014. As a result of her considerable efforts, she leaves an indelible mark on the Library, both in function and form.

Functionally, she elevated the library’s standards to ensure it has been consistently designated as a certified public library by making sure it was in compliance with all regulations. And with her vision and grant-writing skills, her imprint on the physical form of the library will be enduring. From paving the parking lot and drilling a well, to getting new computers and a 3-D printer. The most impressive marriage of vision and grants, however, was in securing funding to install air conditioning and an automatic generator which resulted in the invaluable community service of providing a Warming, Cooling, and Charging Center for Palermo.

So, while it is with deep regret that the trustees accepted her resignation from the board, it is also with undying gratitude for all she has done in service to the Palermo Community Library
