I am pleased to work with talented and eager staff at the Niagara Falls Public Library (NY). By working together, shifting a few duties, we are able to increase the availability of the Niagara Falls Public Library’s Local History hours from 9 hours per week to 20 hours per week, all without an increase in cost to taxpayers.

The three stand with an impressive exhibit Schultz assembled of notable Niagara County women, ranging from the Seven Sutherland Sisters to Joyce Carol Oates. (Robert Kirkham/Buffalo News)
