The Susan Buzzett Clementson Author Series is named in honor of Ms. Clementson who passed away on December 30, 2017. She was a lifelong advocate of libraries, literature, and the importance of library programs, including a career as librarian at Pine Hills Elementary School in Orlando and head of the Rosman Middle and High School Library in Brevard, North Carolina.
She connected with the Apalachicola Municipal Library when she returned to the area to be with family, and became a leader in advancing new programs to provide education and literacy. She advocated for a new library location where all children of Franklin County would have access to library services. Her vision and support led to the development of the new Apalachicola Margaret Key Library facility that officially opened in February of 2018.
