Come Say Farewell to Miss Denise

Thursday, May 5 at 3pm

After more than 17 years, numerous crafts, and too many story times to count, Miss Denise has decided it is time to retire and enjoy her home and family on a full time basis. While this was a very difficult decision for her to leave her library family, we know she will now be a regular patron and devoted grandma bringing her little ones to enjoy the stories, songs and love of literature that she herself has shared with so many. We cannot begin to express the impact she has had on the children, families and her co-workers over the years. We're all very excited for her as she begins this next chapter and know that many of our families would like to wish her well, and congratulate her on a fabulous career. Hope to see you at her reception on Thursday, May 5, 3pm to 5pm, in the Youth Services Department, of course.
