Who’s Who at the Coburn Free Library

Our director, trustees, and staff are proud to contribute to the Owego community through their work at the Coburn Free Library.

Meredith Gallaro, our director, began her work at the Coburn Free Library in 2017.

 

“Mrs. G” loves to write poetry and short stories, reads voraciously, is a passionate reading advocate, adores all things linguistic, and is honored to call Coburn Free Library her home away from home.  She is fluent in Spanish and, as a teacher for most of her career, loves learning and is passionate about education.

The rest of the talented Coburn Free Library team consists of:

Mandi, Assistant Director
Carolyn, Cataloging (Books)
Lesley, Cataloging (Media)
Doreen, Library Aid
Caroline, Library Aid
 
In addition, the Coburn Free Library is governed by a Board of Directors. Our current Board consists of:
Linda Williams

The board of the Coburn Free Library meets the second Thursday of each month at 10:00 am in the Eva Thomas room.  Board meetings are open to the public.  All are welcome to attend.
