The Hudson community celebrates the life and legacy of librarian Marjie Origlio. Marjie grew up in Hudson on her family’s farm on Aurora Road. She attended Hudson High School and Kent State University. After graduating she worked at the Hudson Library & Historical Society for 32 years.
During her 32 year career at the Hudson Library & Historical Society, she served as the children’s and young adult librarian. She was well known as Mrs. “O” and was celebrated as a children’s storyteller at the library, at the local community schools and library events across Summit County. After retiring she continued story telling at the Hudson Methodist Church preschool and St. Mary’s Catholic Church preschool.
Colleagues at the Hudson Library & Historical Society reminisce about her kind nature and dedication to her job as a librarian. Marjie was well known for her “celebration books,” and took great consideration in finding the right book for that special person. Children of all ages read books to get to have “dinner with a librarian,” which became a beloved opportunity and friendship with Mrs. “O.”
Marjie Origlio was loved by everyone who knew her. She loved gardening and was a devoted fan of all of the Cleveland sports teams, especially the Cleveland Indians.
Memorials may be made in her honor to the Hudson Library & Historical Society Children’s Room.
