Dear editor,

As my tenure as director of the Marion County Library Sub-district No. 1 comes to a close, I thank the board of trustees who hired me and the entire community which has been so welcoming.

I have very much enjoyed living here and serving the people. I look forward to watching as the community and the library grow together in the years to come.

A big thank you to the staff who have been such great people with whom to work: Mary Jones, Leslie Gehring, Kris Abbott and Ruth Garner!

It has been fun to work with the teen “pages” as well, and I know they each have bright futures!

In the words of the song: Thanks for the memories!

Peggy Northcraft
