Books in this year's Agnes Jayne Memorial

The 2021 selections for the Agnes Jayne Memorial Fund will be on display May 28-June 12 at the Main Branch.

The Agnes Jayne Memorial Fund was established in 1993. Agnes Jayne was born January 11, 1912 in Iron Mountain. She was a lifelong resident of Iron Mountain and an Iron Mountain High School graduate. She married Kenneth W. Jayne on January 28, 1931 and raised four children. Both Mr. and Mrs. Jayne were prominent members of our community; he worked in business, she in sales. Agnes was a devoted library supporter, an avid reader, and a dedicated volunteer at St. Vincent de Paul. She enjoyed crocheting, playing cards, and being with her many friends.

The memorial fund provides readers with a variety of romance fiction and large print titles. Annual contributions have been made to the endowment by her daughter, Mary (Jayne) Erickson Parrott in honor of her children, Terri (Erickson) Court, Gary and Gregg Erickson, and her 5 grandsons, Benjamin and Joshua Court and Colin, Connor, and Caleb Erickson.

This year’s selection of popular fiction, listed below, includes two books by Cari Lynn Webb, an author with local ties! Click the links below to place a hold on each title through our online card catalog.
