I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Dr. Leroy Hommerding’s family, friends and colleagues on the devastating loss of Dr. Hommerding. I know the library community is saddened by this terrible tragedy. I want to offer our support. We will keep Dr. Hommerding in our thoughts and prayers and celebrate his commitment to build a stronger community through his work at Fort Myers Beach Public Library.
