The Huntingford Humanities Lecture was established in 2001 in memory of Sara L. Huntingford, a long-time supporter of the Jefferson County Library. The Library District was formed in 1978 – due in part to her efforts. As a teacher and mother, Sara understood the importance of opening the door of learning to people who lived in isolated, rural areas. She realized that quality library service was the key to that door.
