From the Librarian's Shelf
Wednesday, November 3, 2010 • Posted November 3, 2010

This will be my last column for the library and next Tuesday, November 9 will be my last day as librarian of the Mason County M. Beven Eckert Memorial Library. Thanks to every one who has made my roles as library volunteer, assistant librarian, and librarian such enjoyable experiences. I’ve loved 99% of it and the other 1% I don’t remember anyway so I leave with only fond memories. I’m excited for the next chapter of my story to unfold and I wish you all the best in your life stories as well. I look forward to seeing you in the library in my new role as a fellow library patron. Happy Reading!
