Belcamp, Md., September 30, 2021 — A bench in memory of Linda McIntyre, a member of the Havre de Grace Friends of the Library, was dedicated on September 27. The bench is located on the upstairs Terrace in the Havre de Grace Library.

McIntyre was a member of the Friends of the Library since 2014. She was invited to join the Friends by her sister-in-law, Carol McIntyre, who is a founding member of the group.

Linda McIntyre was an active participant who assisted with book sales and various library activities. At her passing, her husband, John McIntyre, also a member of the Friends group, named the Friends of the Library as the beneficiary of memorial gifts.

“Linda was a loyal Friend of the Library who could be counted on to help with book sales and to participate in all library activities,” said Mary Hastler, CEO of Harford County Public Library. “We are grateful for and remember all Linda did for the Havre de Grace Library. The bench is a wonderful tribute to Linda’s great love of the library.”
