Columbus’ own Mary Lou Sharpee is the Columbia County Library Advocate of 2016! During the library’s Friday Night Out celebration, Mary Lou was honored for her achievement and received her award from Columbia County Library Board Trustee Judy Eulberg.

Mary Lou is more than deserving of this award. She is a retired teacher who taught in the area. She spends countless hours helping and tutoring people with their literacy needs.
