"EWML at Night"

On behalf of Bob and Antoinette Cargill, Cargill Photo of Monroe recently donated the photographic print "EWML at Night" to the Edith Wheeler Memorial Library. This print shows the front entrance of the library at sunset with the interior lighting of the library in striking contrast to the darkening sky. Bob and Antoinette "feel this image shows the inner glow of knowledge that permeates this beautiful building and will provide a place for learning and sharing knowledge for generations to come". Framing for the photo is the gift of Eric Peterson and Kosal Eang of Creative Framing, 150 Main St. Monroe.

The Cargills have two sons and six grandchildren. Mr. Cargill is active in the community and serves, or has served on, the Monroe Chamber of Commerce, Monroe Business Directory Committee, Monroe Rotary Club, Monroe Health Dept., St. Peter's Vestry, Boy Scout Troop 62 committeeman and Photo Merit Badge councilor. Cargill Photo provides services in aerial, advertising, commercial and industrial photography with specialties in glass, bright metal, close-up photography and plane-to-plane photography.

As Library Director I am very pleased to accept this handsome gift. The area I have chosen to hang it also includes the oil painting of the first library, built of brick and dedicated in 1958, it stood adjacent to the old Monroe Town Hall. With these two images close together, our patrons can see the history of library service in Monroe and be proud of the commitment of this community to learning, knowledge, and freedom of information. Bob and Antionette are good friends to the library and Monroe as evidenced by this gift.
