Our small town library volunteers had a farewell luncheon with out wonderful librarian of the past eight and a half years.
A small town library is a big time job and it was time for Donna to move onto other things, but she will be greatly missed at the library. Of course, we have become friends and so we were not saying good-bye, just good wishes on the new job.
A new librarian has been hired. She will start next Monday. She has big shoes to fill.
I am afraid she was promised way more volunteer help than will actually be available. Three of the volunteers are dealing with health issues--one recovery from a hip replacement, one facing both her own shoulder surgery and a daughter's critical surgery, and another with progressing COPD. One volunteer, the one who gave the most time, notified the board that he was leaving to pursue other interests, one will be moving out of town, and I will be leaving for Florida.
But she strikes me as a capable and resourceful person, so I am not worried.
I [lan to get back to actually reading books more now!
