“The last Rotary Club of Harrisburg Service on a Monday during Service September was a big success,” so brags Meghan Bachmore and Karen Cullings Executive Director of the McCormick Riverfront Library part of the Dauphin County Library.

Twenty RCH volunteers charged right into numerous tasks including cobweb dusting, gardening and interior and exterior cleanup work.  All in preparation for the Library’s grand reopening after a year and a half of renovations. 
The Library’s leadership team was very appreciative of the RCH volunteer’s engagement with the various projects and the final results.  According to Bachmore, “We even got to share our leftover catering from lunch with library staff and patrons.”
On Thursday, October 20 at 10 a.m., the library is “opening the cover on the newest edition” of the expanded Library with a ribbon cutting and dedication.  
At noon and 5:30 RCH’s own David Morrison, of the Historic Harrisburg Association and Charles Alexander, library expansion architect, will explore the history of the library and surrounding area and take a tour that points to the unique challenges and opportunities that arose while uniting the McCormick Riverfront Library with the Haldeman Haly House.

Background on this service project, includes years of engagement by RCH members Susan Anthony, Marion Alexander and Karen Cullings.
As explained by Anthony who served as Co-chair for the project’s capital campaign, “The vision of joining the library with the Haldeman Haly House took extensive planning.  We’re so pleased to see the project come to fruition and expand the value of the Library for patrons in the Central Pennsylvania region.
For some time, many Rotarians have so graciously helped with this project and campaign. I especially wish to acknowledge Jeb Stuart, Bruce Grossman, Ellen Brown, Betty Hungerford, Irene and Sam Levine, Andy Rebuck, Janice Black, Carolyn Dumaresq, Bob Geiger, Peggy Grove, Dave Morrison, Karen Cullings  and those I have inadvertently missed."
