Books in his name were donated to the library
 The late Jonathan Roper, a Stratford resident and former member of the Stratford Library Board of Trustees, was remembered recently with a donation in his name to the Library. 
Roper's widow, Elaine, donated two books of poetry by renowned author Nikki Giovanni. 
The books, "Quilting the Black-Eyed Pea" and "The Collected Poetry of Nikki Giovanni," have been added to the Young Adult Non-Fiction circulating collection in memory of Jonathan Roper.
