Unsung Heroes #86

A few weeks ago, Katherine Bruan’s son was in a serious automobile accident. Ever since, her days have been filled with whatever a mom can do to help.

When he was still in the hospital, Katherine got an email from the Westport Library. She had 2 overdue books.

Both had been in the car. When it caught fire, they were destroyed. Katherine said she’d pay for both of them.

Immediately, the library replied: There was no charge.

The library is here for the community, the email said. She did not need one extra thing to worry about.

Take care of your son, the library added. And if you need anything from us, please call.

After the accident, many Westporters have reached out to help Katherine and her son. She is grateful to all.

But that one email was particularly special.

Any library is an institution. How nice that ours also has a heart.


The Perks Of Being A Barista’s Mother

The quote above belongs to Katherine Bruan.

The photo below is hers too:

Happy Mother’s Day to every “06880” mom.

The ones who live here now, and the ones who once did.

The ones who are 30, and the ones who are 90.

The ones with 1-year-olds, and the ones whose own moms are no longer here.

Thanks for all you do. You help make this town wonderful.

In other words, you are all great-grand-mothers!
