Delegate Alfonso Lopez joined Library Director Diane Kresh on Nov. 20 to honor former County history preservationist Sara Collins.
Collins died last year after a remarkable career with the Library and what is now the Center for Local History at Central.
Her work was remembered this year with a resolution in the General Assembly.
Delegate Lopez made his presentation at the final meeting of the County’s History Task Force.
The group of County staff and residents is working on a 5-year plan for the future preservation and study of Arlington historic documents and records, both official and those generated by private citizens, businesses and organizations.
A final task force report will be presented to the County Board next month.
