Reader writes: Frame shop deserves a mention

Story left one thing out

In response to “After decades, etchings go on display,” I have been admiring those etchings for some time now, and I’m glad the newspaper did a story to encourage others to perhaps come in just to see them. However, there was an omission in the story – the name of the local framer.

Smithfield is lucky to have Tara Dunn and Memory Lane Framing. Tara is an accomplished framer and knows how to frame with archival materials so that pictures and other keepsakes are protected. I happen to know that she did that framing since some of us helped her carry them into the library. Her skills are certainly equal to if not better than those of many framers in the greater Raleigh area.

And I happen to know she gave the library a break on the price of framing those etchings – she’s loyal to her town. She added more than $50,000 to the value of the collection–her contributions should be acknowledged.
