IN MEMORY OF ELIZABETH (HEGGAN) WHITTINGTON

We were saddened to learn of the passing of Elizabeth Whittington in November. Elizabeth was the daughter of the late Margaret Heggan and a dear friend to the library. She was born and raised in Washington Township. She became the first librarian at the Cape May County School for Special Services where she was instrumental in designing and creating the library. The Heggan Library was pleased to welcome Elizabeth to our 50th anniversary celebration in 2016.
