Morton Township Library honors Russell Kirk with dedication of display.

The new Morton Township library, a short walk from the Kirk Center in the village of Mecosta, Michigan, now features a display case and a bust of Dr. Kirk in its Fireside Room. The dedication ceremony was held on July 28, 2012. The local paper, The Pioneer of Big Rapids, reported that in her remarks, library director Mary Ann Lenon “emphasized Kirk’s unique share in the foundation of the library back in the mid-1960s, and noted the Kirk family’s continuing leadership in promoting not only the library itself, but also cultural growth and awareness throughout the area.” Kirk Center president Annette Kirk and director of publications Dr. Jeffrey O. Nelson both spoke at the dedication ceremony.

A poor man, if he has dignity, honesty, the respect of his neighbors, a realization of his duties, a love of the wisdom of his ancestors, and possibly some taste for knowledge or beauty, is rich in the unbought grace of life.
