On December 9, twenty years after beginning my career at the State Library, it is time to say goodbye to the many, many friends I have found in state government and in the library world.
My life has been truly blessed in working closely with Duane Johnson and Christie Brandau. It was through their encouragement that I was able to meet and work with so many wonderful directors, consultants, librarians, trustees, and friends of the public, academic and special libraries across the state. I have worked in circulation, state documents, interlibrary loan and resource sharing, and for the last 10 years have been chief financial officer of the library. What a privilege it has been to serve all of you across the state and to serve my friends here at the State Library.
Of course, I am not leaving the library world completely. I will be working a few hours a week at the Kansas Library Association.
If you are ever around Overbrook, stop by the farm and see me. I will be down at the pond fishing and feeding the geese.
