The Warren County Public Library is sorry to lose Donna Objartel. Donna was an employee at the library for 20 years as our book selector and cataloger. She had a talent for helping patrons find new authors to enjoy. She had a fantastic memory and oftentimes placed holds on the patron’s behalf, knowing his/her favorite authors or genres. She was our recycling queen, always making sure the library was environmentally friendly.

She loved her family, reading, Maxine birthday cards, and potato chips. In other words, she recognized all the important things in life. 

She was the matriarch of our library family and a mentor to us all.  "Oh Godfrey," she will be dearly missed.

Her obituary can be found at:
