In memory of Roger Fisher.
June 29, 1937 - July 13, 2015

The library was one of Roger's main passions in life and he was very proud of being able to assist, as a long serving board member and president,  in giving Franklin Grove a beautiful library that many generations can enjoy. As a child, I can remember my dad telling me that "if you can read, you can do anything". That has followed me throughout my life and I hope that everyone that visits the library will check out a book and take a journey into a world of words that will take you anywhere where you can do anything.
