New Partnership with Curious Iguana

To build its leisurely reading collection, the Beneficial-Hodson Library is embarking on a new partnership with Curious Iguana, a bookstore and gift shop in the heart of Downtown Frederick. Owners Marlene Roberson England ’86 and husband Tom opened Curious Iguana in September 2013. Since then, alumni Lauren Nopenz Fairley ’15, operations manager, and Bonnie Monnier ’16, marketing and events coordinator, have joined the Curious Iguana team and have helped make it a literary hotspot. This partnership will allow the library to take advantage of the stellar reading recommendations provided by the staff at Curious Iguana, and their in-depth knowledge of young adult fiction. We look forward to working with this local and alum-owned business.
