On July 25, 2017, the Library and the Charlotte community lost a great friend when Dennis Rash, former Library Trustee, passed away.
Rash’s leadership contributions to the Library were numerous. He served as a Library Trustee from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, with terms as Vice Chair and Chair during that time. In 2010-2011, he volunteered with the Future of the Library Task Force, and more recently he served as Chair of the Main Library Reinvention Committee.
Said Library CEO Lee Keesler, "He loved the Library and our mission. His counsel and friendship will be missed."
Rash’s memorial service will be Wednesday, August 2, at 11 am, at First Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, NC.
