This past Monday, the Gadsden County Public Library in Quincy hosted a cookout fundraiser to help Joan Vann, a library employee who lost her home in a fire on March 19.
Vann, who is the Bookmobile librarian, said, “I’m just overwhelmed. I work with the best here in Gadsden County at the Library.”
Vann said her husband was in the house when the fire started, but made it out unharmed.
“The blessing in the whole thing was no life was lost,” Vann said.
