Sue Rhu Room

A ribbon cutting was held May 3 at the Oakhurst Library for the “Sue Rhu Children’s Room,” following a memorial service at the Oakhurst Communitty Center for Rhu, who passed away April 7, in Reno, at the age of 84. Participating in the ribbon cutting were, from left, Oakhurst Library Manager Dale Rushing, Rhu’s four children Denise Ayeni, Tom Rhu, Patrick Wininger, Janet Wininger, and Virginia Fox, the first president of the Friends of the Oakhurst Branch Library (FOBL). Rhu served as the library’s manager for 24 years (1972 - 1996). A sign bearing Rhu’s name, provided by the friends of the library, hangs over the door to the children’s room. A photo of Rhu and a plaque hang at the doors leading to the room, and her name has been added to the FOBL memorial plaque. The first name on the plaque is Phillip Rhu, Sue’s husband, who preceded her in death.
