August 2, 2013, Eli Guinnee , Library Director at the Patterson Library, will leave this position to become the Managing Director of the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System, which is a cooperative library system chartered by the NYS Regents to serve the 36 public libraries in the two-county area. For the past five years Eli has put his own mark on the programs the library offers. He has expanded and created new ways for adults, teens and children to make use of Westfield's wonderful library. It is with great sadness that we have accepted his resignation. Our loss is a terrific gain for the library system. Fortunately, Eli and family will remain in Westfield so they will still be part of our community. Please stop by the library and wish Eli the best in his new venture.
Sandra Brown, President
Patterson Library Board of Trustees
