APL Mourns the Loss of John Carty

We are saddened to share the news of the passing of long-time Library Trustee, John Carty, on November 30. In June, John was honored for his over 26 years of service as Treasurer to our Board of Trustees. Prior to joining the Library Board of Trustees, he served on the School Committee for 14 years.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday, December 5, 2019 at 11 a.m. at St. John the Evangelist Church in Attleboro, with Visitation at Duffy-Poule Funeral Home, 20 Peck St., from 9-10:30 a.m. that morning. Interment will take place on Friday, December 6, at noon at Calvary Cemetery, 151 Eastern Avenue, Gloucester, MA. Friends and family are kindly invited.

Memorial donations in his name to the Friends of the Attleboro Public Library (APLFriends.org or 74 North Main Street, Attleboro, MA 02703) or The National Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette (LaSaletteAttleboroShrine.org or 947 Park Street, Attleboro, MA 02703) would be a generous and much appreciated way to honor John and advance work that was important to him.
