I’m sure many of you remember Mrs. Copin (and her family) from kindergarten. Her daughter, Barbara Moore, recently passed away, and at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3 (Barbara’s 70th birthday), Mattituck-Laurel Library will dedicate a beautiful bronze statue of two children reading in her honor. Barbara worked at the library from 1996 to 2016 and loved children and reading. Everyone is welcome. After the dedication, there will be a milk and cookie celebration in the downstairs meeting room.
