Over the course of many years of dedicated voluntary service on the Delanco Public Library Board of Trustees, Joe generously offered his time and considerable talents on behalf of the library.  He could be counted on to staff the library table at events like Community Day where, guitar in hand, he would readily improvise new songs about the joys of the library.  When there were envelopes to stuff, Joe was there.  When there was a book sale, Joe was there.  He and his wife Ellen wrapped presents at Barnes and Noble for Friends of the Delanco Library fundraisers.   


Joe attended most of the library’s special events, but he was the heart and soul of the book club.  As a former high school English teacher, Joe had the skills both to analyze what he read and to lead thought-provoking and insightful conversations.  At monthly trustee meetings, it was often a comment from Joe that clarified the thinking of the board.  He had the ability to form one perfectly worded sentence that said it all.


Joe always showed the deepest respect and appreciation for those around him.  His kindness, sense of humor and booming laugh made it a pleasure to be in his presence.  He will be sorely missed. 

Throughout 2021 we will be offering a variety of free workshops from The Society for Financial Awareness.
