Pierce County Family Connection partnered with Pierce County Certified Literate Community Program, Concerted Services, and the Pierce County Senior Center to celebrate Mozelle Ryals Brown’s 100th birthday, along with a dedication and ribbon cutting for the third of six Little Book House Lending Libraries.
Congressman Buddy Carter, Mayor Dick Larson, Mayor Pro-Tem Mary Lott Walker, and numerous local dignitaries, business leaders, community advocates, friends, and family attended the event.
“Mrs. Brown was born Aug. 22, 1917, and has lived a wonderful full life and continues to keep her family hopping,” said Stephanie Bell, Pierce County Family Connection coordinator. “The little book house was dedicated to her in honor of her love of reading even though her education was only on an eighth-grade level. Mrs. Brown said she strived to educate herself and continues to read regularly so she does not lose her mental sharpness. She is a great lady with a lot of love to share.”
