Meet our "Spotlight on Local Business" Business of the Month:
Nancy Cruz-Hess

Our featured local person in business is Nancy Cruz-Hess. She is a licensed insurance agent in Connecticut and a resident of Naugatuck. She represents different insurers and plans focusing on funeral and final expenses. She can also arrange services such as discounted caskets, counseling, and other expenses.

“Yo Hablo Espanol”

Visit the library during the month of December to learn more about the work Nancy does and if she can be of assistance to you or someone you know.  

 Whittemore will showcase a different Connecticut-based hardworking, innovative, and creative business, professional, or artisan each month. Contact Kirk at the library to be an upcoming "Spotlight" star.
