The library board has hired a replacement for Beverly Ripka, Director, who will be retiring at the end of June after 22 years of faithful service and dedication. Laurie Hale will report to duty on May 1, 2022, for training. Laurie comes to us with 23 years of IT experience at APW. Bev Ripka will continue to volunteer where needed, along with the other wonderful ladies who regularly volunteer. Please give Laurie a warm welcome when you run into her on your next visit to the library!
