Lucy arrived at the Pember November 15, 2008. This is one of the very first pictures of Lucy we shared with the world on December 16, 2008.
It included the caption: ” Lucy has been at the library for over a month now. She has done her job well: to act charming and make the library a welcoming and homey place.”

Lucy is getting older. We have recently faced several visits to the vet clinic with her, with issues that unfortunately come with aging. We find a need for extra funds for Lucy to cover vet visits, medicines and looking ahead to the end of life care. Lucy has been a faithful loving companion to many people who visit the Pember; some drop in just to spend time with her. We are asking, if you are able, to consider donating money toward Lucy’s care. Please send contributions to the Pember Library, 33 West Main Street, Granville NY 12832. Indicate your donation is for “Lucy.” Any amount will be greatly appreciated.

Edit: for those who have asked about online donations, there’s a donate button under the catalog at . Please mark any donation “for Lucy.” Thank you.

This picture of Lucy was taken May 28, 2020. She is still as beautiful as ever. 😻
