Roseland Free Public Library director Jen Overton presented Bill Cinque with a Lifetime Achievement Award on behalf of the library on March 3. Bill, a longtime Roseland resident affectionately known as "Mr. C," was honored at a special luncheon hosted by the Friends of the Roseland Free Public Library. In addition to serving as secretary for the Friends of the Library, Bill's list of contributions to the library range from his annual holiday train exhibit to Star Wars movie marathons to helping assemble the new children's furniture at the library. We appreciate Bill's dedication, pleasant demeanor, and fun spirit, and we look forward to making more memories!
