Although my retirement became a reality on December 31st, it is proving to be a difficult transition given my 16 years of service at the Trinity County Loresta-esquibelibrary and a total of 37 years as a librarian. For better or worse, life is full of decisions and forks in the road but I am gratified that I have had a good career, spending my time around books and people who appreciate reading and knowledge. I trust that libraries will always be places of sanctuary where anyone can use some or all of the services provided, even if it’s a place to sit quietly and contemplate. In this fast-paced world, everyone needs a place to disconnect, take a deep breath and regenerate. Libraries fulfill that need by being a public space where people may meet others to converse, share and even disagree. You can think of the library as an “oasis of the mind”, here when you need it. I certainly hope libraries continue to serve the needs of the public for many more years to come.
