In Memory of Steve Hengen

We were saddened to hear of the passing of Steve Hengen on Dec. 20, 2016.  Steve was a longtime Concord Public Library booster and lover of books, with many years in service as President on the board of the library trustees as well as with the Concord Public Library Foundation.
In his obituary, Steve is described as a “highly intelligent and intellectually curious man…who read widely and was deeply knowledgeable and articulate in diverse fields.” Visitors to his home are said to be amazed by “the sheer number of books he owned – each one of which he had read and was thoroughly conversant with.” Read more about his life here.
