To Whom It May Concern:
During the past five years, the board of trustees and I have been on a long, time consuming and work intense journey to build a new library in the northeast corner of Monroe County. Our lives have been consumed with capital fundraising, special events, and planning meetings.
It has been our pleasure to work with J.P. Jay Associates Inc. We investigated several companies before engaging J.P. Jay. The company had been highly recommended to us by Carol Kern, library director at Western Pocono Community Library, Brodheadsville, PA. She is a highly respected and trusted colleague.
We met with Jim Malise and Christine Erdossy for the first time in January 2006. My board president, Carol Hillestad and I were impressed with their expertise and their ability to listen to our needs. After the initial meeting, Christine Erdossy quickly supplied us with answers to our preliminary questions. After receiving our floor plan from our architect, Ms. Erdossy developed display boards to help us visualize the furnishings and begin the selection process. Both Ms. Erdossy and Mr. Malise have always been professional, friendly, adaptable to our concerns and able to find beautiful furnishings within our budget.
In the last week, our furniture and shelving has been arriving. We are very pleased with the installation process, and the beauty and workmanship of the furniture. Our library does not have a maintenance staff; we needed a full service organization, which would install the shelving and leave the library turnkey ready. J. P. Jay is that kind of organization.
On behalf of the library, I heartily recommend J.P. Jay Associates. It has been a pleasure to work with both Jim and Christine throughout the entire process. We look forward to moving to the new library in the next month and enjoying the results of our collaboration.
