Local Attorney Appointed to Wadsworth Public Library Foundation Board

Joel Cavanaugh

The Wadsworth Public Library Foundation Board announces the appointment of local attorney Joel D. Cavanaugh to serve on the board. This appointment is a testament to the long-standing tradition of community service at Palecek, McIlvaine, Hoffmann, & Morse law firm as Cavanaugh will serve on this board, in addition to his various other volunteer efforts around the community.

Cavanaugh looks forward to serving the Foundation, as he is passionate about the library and education in the community, particularly for its youth.  “Being born and raised in Wadsworth and going to the library with my mother to pick out a new book or to stay for story time is a memory that I have always looked back upon with the fondest regard.  Having two children of my own now, I want to be involved with the library, both in volunteering to serve as well as with my continued patronage, to ensure that my children, and other kids in the community can have the same positive experiences I did when I was young.”

            In addition to this foundation board position, Cavanaugh is a member of the Wadsworth Area Chamber of Commerce, the Wadsworth Young Professionals, the Medina County Bar Association, and is active with the YMCA, including teaching a weekly family fitness course.  Joel is also active in his church in Wadsworth, Ikon.

            The Wadsworth Public Library Foundation was established to seek, receive, and administer gifts, bequests, and donations for the support and preservation of the Wadsworth Public Library, beyond the level of taxpayer responsibility and in a manner consistent with the goals of the Library. The Foundation’s bottom line is to help secure the long-term health and vitality of the Wadsworth Public Library through encouragement and stewardship of private giving. Please join us on May 20, 2017 for our annual Bookin 5K race to help show your support for the Wadsworth Public Library and the Foundation.
