Debra Ann November Storybook Room Now Open with Re-opening of Beachwood Library

Beachwood Library Ribbon Cutting

Mort and Iris were on hand for the grand reopening of the renovated Beachwood library, celebrating with a joyous community and an endless supply of ice cream!

There is a teen and children area, as well as a story time area, which was funded by Mort and Iris November, in celebration of Mort's daughter Debra Ann November.

"Our daughter was 24 when she died. It's hard to believe she would have been a grandmother today," Mort November said.

"We dedicated the story book room and the children and teen area to Debra because she loved children," Iris said. "The mission statement for the Phyllis and Debra Ann November Children's Fund is 'enchanting the lives of children,' so this is what they would have wanted."
