Suzanne d’Corsey is honored to share duties with her fellow board members, our excellent librarian Louise Sirois, and Friends and patrons of the Moore Free Library. An award-winning writer, playwright, and author of the Scottish novel The Bonnie Road, Suzanne balances the intensity of writing with the pleasures that Vermont offers; of the beauty of the seasons and mountains, and among the diverse and creative good people of the region. She is a Morris dancer, hiker, gardener, and traditional longbow archer. She is proud to serve on the vibrant Board of the Moore Free Library.
Helen Prescott enjoyed teaching secondary mathematics in Montreal and in Connecticut for many years after earning a BA in Russian from Bryn Mawr and an MALS from Wesleyan specializing in Math. She and Blake, her husband for nearly sixty years (July 2016), and a retired physician, moved to Newfane in 2001. In the course of these years, we welcomed four daughters, two sons-in-law, and four grandsons, all of whom we treasure. Two special favorites in her list of passions are skiing and gardening, and she has always been an avid reader.

Steve Squires has lived in Newfane since 1999, successfully transitioning from a long career in software development to a new life somewhere between retired and homesteading. Visible roles in the community include singing in a church choir and local choral groups, working or speaking as a UVM Extension Master Gardener volunteer, and as a working member at the Brattleboro Food Coop. Steve has served several terms on his church board, holding positions including treasurer and board president. He joined the library board in 2012. Steve is happily married to Kathy Squires, whose volunteer activities eclipse his by a wide margin.
