MASON CITY - - For nearly a century, adults and children alike have utilized the Sunshine Library in Mason City - both as a place to get good books to read, and a place to just hang out.
For many of those years, Joan Cox served the community as the trustworthy librarian. When Joan recently retired from the many duties she took on in the Mason City community, it became necessary for others to step to the plate and take over some of those responsibilities. One of those is the library, and Donna Zimmer and Loretta Lovitt are two of the local volunteers who have agreed to take on the task.
