John F. McDonough
1932 - 2016

John (Jack) McDonough, who had been serving as President of the Henry Waldinger Memorial Library Board, passed away unexpectedly this summer.

Mayor Ed Fare appointed Valley Streamer and former teacher Marie O’Connell to complete Jack’s unexpired 5 year board term. “Jack was a stellar member and President of our Library Board. His service over the past 26 years brought a level of excellence to our library and our village that was unsurpassed ,” Mayor Fare stated.

Library Director Mamie Eng added, “I always knew that Jack was an active member of the Library Board, but when I became director in 2007, I came to realize just how important he was to the board, and to count on his steadfast support.   Jack helped the library evolve into the 21st century as he embraced changes in technology and encouraged the library to introduce new services.    I will miss him greatly, but I am sure that his longtime friend Marie O'Connell will honor his memory with exemplary service on the library board in the coming years.”


Correspondence to the Library Board of Trustees should be addressed as such and sent to the Henry Waldinger Memorial Library, 60 Verona Place, Valley Stream, NY 11582.
