-“Marjorie Mews spent her whole professional career of 30 years within the St Johns library system. Her primary responsibility at first was Children’s services. Over the years her responsibilities would vary, depending on the demands of the library. On April 1, 1959, she was appointed the first chief librarian of the Gosling Memorial Library, a position she would hold until her death in 1965. … Her long service in the St. John’s library, including chief librarian, resulted in her being seen as someone who epitomized all the best qualities of the profession. In 1966, City Council provided funds for two branches and as a reflection of the respect and esteem she had engendered , one was named the Marjorie Mews Library.”\\+“Marjorie Mews spent her whole professional career of 30 years within the St John's library system.
