When the new library opens in the Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre (LCLC) next year, it will bear a familiar name.
It will be the Margaret Hennigar Public Library.
Mrs. Hennigar was the longtime editor of Lighthouse Media Group’s weekly newspapers, formerly the Lunenburg Progress Enterprise and the Bridgewater Bulletin. For nearly four decades, she shared her thoughts and opinions in weekly editorials, garnering international acclaim.
She was also a stalwart community advocate and champion of many causes, including literacy.
“This fit is something that I’ve had in the back of my mind for awhile,” says daughter Lynn Hennigar, Lighthouse Media Group president and publisher.
