Grateful for George Geers
The Concord Public Library Foundation (CPLF) Board and staff would like to recognize and thank George Geers for his years of service to the Board. George has recently resigned after 10 years. A consistent donor and advocate of the library and its outreach to others, George served on committees that included Concord Reads and Grants and Partnerships. He proudly supported the access of literature and library services to community members.
George is the founder and publisher of Plaidswede Publishing, which specializes in New England fiction and non-fiction. He received the Academy of New England Journalist’s Yankee Quill award for lifetime achievement in 2005. Prior to that, George was the editor for the Nashua Telegraph.
