MERRITT HELFFERICH REMEMBERED

In honor of Merritt Helfferich [August 10, 1935 – May 2, 2019], who energetically supported our library since its establishment in 2004, a generous patron established the MERRITT R. HELFFERICH ENDOWMENT FUND, to provide a foundation for the library’s sustainability. Serving as both board chair and treasurer, Merritt was devoted to ensuring the library’s long-term financial stability, and this fund in his name helps do just that. To contribute, you may visit the fund site, or send a check to the the Gila Valley Library (PO Box 439, Gila, NM 88038), and in the memo line, note that it is for this fund. Merritt's dedication to literacy and lifelong learning live on. The Gila Valley Library and its patrons are grateful for your support, as we know Merritt would be. Thank you.
Merritt, demonstrating magnetism to STEAM Camp kids in 2017
