Anna Mae Auchmoedy was the woman we have to thank for the original idea of the Rosendale Library. Anna Mae and the Comus Club of Rosendale started our library in 1940. The Women’s Club of Rosendale was key in promoting and supporting our young library. Lottie Burns worked very closely with Anna Mae for many years.
Eric Bowen has funded two scholarships in memory of his son Matthew C. Bowen. Matthew had many interests, he was an avid reader and cyclist.
