While practicing PT, Sharon and her husband,Ted, along with their 9 month old daughter left Long Island, NY and purchased the Bernerhof Inn in 1977, knowing the MWV was where they wanted to raise their family. This was the first of many entrepreneur projects they pursued as their family grew to four children. She continued to practice PT in 1980’s and helped start Children Unlimited. 

Sharon values the sense of community that she has here in the Valley. Ted and she co-chaired the Capital Campaign Committee for the first phase of MWVTA Rec Path. Sharon enjoys nature and the outdoors to include biking, walking, gardening and snowshoeing all from her backyard!  She has many interests including knitting, reading and sewing, but cooking remains high on her list. Sharon and Ted have always enjoyed the adventures of travel, but enjoy coming home. A long time patron and supporter of the library, late in 2020 Sharon joined the Pope Memorial  Library as the Chair of the Capital Campaign and late in 2021 she joined the board.

Board Member

 

A native of Hanover, Pennsylvania (home of Utz Chips and Snyder's Pretzels), Jake moved to the Mount Washington Valley with his bride--a Bartlett girl and proud Kennett Eagle. Jake is an attorney at Cooper Cargill Chant [link to https://www.coopercargillchant.com/jakecrabbs], just up the road from the Pope Memorial Library. Jake is a fan of classic literature, comic short stories, and Greek philosophy. His three children are fans of the excellent books in the Library's children's room (to say nothing of the toy trains!)

 

Jake joined the Library's Board in 2023 as a way to both give back to and become more involved in the Valley community that has welcomed him so kindly.

Although a native of Washington, DC, Molly Maletta Haydock's heart belongs to the White Mountains. An avid hiker and outdoorsperson, Molly moved up to the Mt. Washington Valley in 2023 with her husband, daughter, and dog. Pope Memorial Library quickly became her family's go-to hub for community (and a source of wonderful children's books!).  Molly is a language teacher and school counselor by trade and an avid reader of all things true crime and mystery related. Her favorites are the Montalbano murder-mystery series by Andrea Camilleri. 

 

Molly joined the Pope Memorial Library board in early 2024 because she is passionate about supporting the library's mission, services, and community.
