It is with great sadness that I share the news of Anne Blanchard’s passing. She has been a great supporter of the library for many years and served on our board of trustees as secretary for the last 9 years. Anne was a regular at our monthly book discussions and never missed a program we were sponsoring or had any shared interest in. She enjoyed everything from the Friendly Pirate to Speakers Bureau Programming. She will be missed. There will be a Remembrance Service for Anne July 13th at the Bakersfield Historical Society.
