In Memory

Bill EliasPuppy Tales volunteer at Burbank Public Library, passed away on Monday, November 30th. Bill was a sweet person and a dedicated volunteer. He and his therapy dog, Annie, touched the lives of many families at Buena Vista Branch during the past five years. He meant so much to all the children, whose parents would approach him to say "my child has flourished not only in reading but in confidence after working with you and your dog."

Our heartfelt sympathy is tendered to Bill's lovely wife, Esther Elias, and her family. You are in our thoughts, and Bill is forever in our hearts.

Burbank Public Library has also lost long-time Friends of the Library board member and volunteer Morton Sollod, on November 3, 2015. He and his late wife, Elaine, were charter members of the Friends and a constant presence here for the past 35 years; at the book sale, English conversation group, Friends meetings, and anywhere else he was needed. His passing is a great loss to our library family.
