The Phoenix Public Library Board of Trustees and staff are deeply saddened by the loss of our Board President and friend, Gordon C. Tappan. Gordon served on the Board for 50 years and was instrumental in the construction of the current library building. Along with his service to the Phoenix Public Library, Gordon, a prominent local businessman, was an active member of the Lion’s Club, the Phoenix Historical Society, the First Congregational Church and other civic groups. He will be missed.
