After serving Questa for five years in the library, I have decided to hang up my due date stamps and say farewell. But you can’t get rid of me so easily. I will continue to volunteer, lead the Book Club, knit at Dropped Stitch (or Stitch and Bitch as some call it), and serve the Friends of QPL in grant writing.
I simply do not wish to have all the responsibility anymore and I have passed that on to Sharon Nicholson, who will do a stellar job. Alberta Bouyer has been hired to take Sharon’s place, and she will do a fine job as well.
I will continue to read, knit, garden, and clean my house instead of the library. There is a new dog at our house and I discovered that I enjoy being at home with the dogs and cats and my husband Andy, of course.
I will miss the people that I’ve come to know over the years. I hope to see you all when I’m at the library, or the post office. I promise to visit the village office occasionally, as I will truly miss the village people who work there. The Mayor has given the library tremendous support over the years and I credit her for its existence.
Credit also goes to all the faithful library patrons. Its success is due to your patronage. Programs that are popular have been suggested by patrons. Books and movies have been purchased due to your requests. Keep telling the librarians and volunteers what you would like to read or programs that you would like to participate in so the library can continue to move forward.
Due to your patronage, the library needs to grow and expand. My next task is to find the money to help the library grow. If you have some spare change, please donate to the Friends of QPL so we can work on expansion.
Wait, I thought I was retiring!
