HELLO! This blog space has been quiet for quite awhile (not that I was ever a prolific blogger anyway…). We usually post announcements about our summer events and our Distinguished Writers Series. We were planning big things. But none of it happened. A common theme for the summer, and 2020 in general!
We did have our Annual Meeting this past Thursday. We welcomed Felicia Dunson, Lisa Jahn-Clough, and Kelena Reid, who will be our new Secretary. So glad to have them! Carol Burdick will be our new President, with Miki Partridge stepping down but remaining on the board. THANK YOU MIKI! Your leadership has been extraordinary in an extraordinary time.
And we said goodbye to some board members too. I’d like to take a moment to recognize all their hard work. Thank you to Jan Kornbluth, Bob Smith (who will remain ex-officio in an advisory role), and Candis Kerns. They have been on the board since I started as Librarian in 2011! From Raffle ticket selling to events planning and everything in between, these people have truly made the Library the institution it is. I’d like to especially thank Candis, who was the President when I first began this job, right out of college. She has helped and encouraged me so much. I’m going to miss you! But I know you’ll each remain an active part of the Library community.
Upwards and onwards! If you’d like to hear more, please click here to read my full Librarian’s report. Among other things, you’ll find out: how we fared during the pandemic, how to get WiFi, and my plans for anti-racist posts online.
Lastly, I just want to say I’ve been so happy to greet many of our regulars this summer and this month in particular. For those of you who aren’t able to be with us, we miss you. Thank you all for your support!
