The Cedarburg Public Library recently held a celebration for director, Mary Marquardt, who will be retiring in November. In honor of Mary’s retirement, library staff member Kelly (Colleen) Dennison, with the help of her mom, Kathy O’Neil Thiele, and her friend, Nancy Stecker, made a quilt over the summer. The quilt was made out of all the Summer Reading Program t-shirts (22 of them) that Mary saved over the years, and it was Kelly’s first quilting project.

Mary was joined by her family, with whom she’s looking forward to spending more time, as well as Linda Pierschalla, the incoming Cedarburg Public Library director.

What a beautiful job on the quilt, Kelly, and congratulations to Mary. We wish her our best.
