The Goessel Public Library has placed four new books on the shelves in memory of Dorothy Ratzlaff. Ratzlaff, who died in August, spent many hours through the years as a faithful, knowledgeable volunteer for the library. For many years, she helped select books from the North Central Kansas Library mobile van. In addition, she served on the library board, kept the card catalog updated, repaired and shelved books, painted walls, and helped out wherever needed.
When the library moved to its current location nearly 10 years ago, Ratzlaff’s help was invaluable. She continued to be a supporter of the library and an avid reader until her death. She will be greatly missed by the library.
The four books dedicated in her memory are: “It Only Takes a Moment,” by Mary Jane Clark; “The Story of Edgar Sawtelle,” by Ediger Wroblewski; “Silks,” by Dick Francis and Felix Francis, and “A Voyage Long and Strange,” by Tony Horowitz.
