“Miss Daisy”

Daisy Norton, known by generations of library users as “Miss
Daisy” died on September 7, 1964.  Miss
Daisy was a fixture at the Transylvania County Library since the days of the
first library on the courthouse lawn. 
Miss Daisy began working at the library around 1936 along side of Miss
Annie Jean Gash.

Miss Daisy was responsible for preparing the books for the
shelves, mending any damaged books and circulation.  Although Miss Daisy was quiet and rather shy,
everyone who used the library knew and loved her.

 When Mrs. Kapp became the head Librarian in 1944 Miss Daisy
remained on as the little library grew. 
In December 1956 the library moved into a new building (today the County
Administration Building beside the Courthouse). 
Miss Daisy continued to work at the library until June 1964.
