Dear Libs-or/OLA Friends,


After close to four decades off-and-on in the Oregon library community (30 at OSU, with 19 of them in government documents) I will be retiring at the end of the month and moving to Florence, thus fulfilling a longstanding ambition to live on the Oregon coast!


Iíve had a wonderful time being a librarian, and a big part of that was being a member of OLA. Here I made a lot of friends (a special shout-out to DIGOR, my OLA home) and felt truly privileged to serve a term as Treasurer, and on several conference and other OLA committees and task forces. Thank you all for your friendship and collegiality. Youíre a great bunch of people to work and socialize with! J


Thatís it, Iím getting choked up now. My last day at work will be next Friday, August 24.

Siuslaw Public Library, Iím coming your way!
