Youth Services Librarian Janice Felker retires
I suppose that whenever one sees the end of something in sight , it is only natural to start thinking about the journey that rests in the past and all the people that were a part of that journey. As I look forward to my retirement from my job as Youth Services Librarian at Eastern Shore Public Library , I am cherishing so many wonderful memories. Here are just a few of them: playing follow the leader with my Storytime children, watching children enjoy the great meals provided by our Summer Food Program, attending Grandparents’ Day at Pungoteague Elementary School and many other school events, meeting with the great teens on our Teen Advisory Board, attending library conferences with wonderful co-workers, going through countless numbers of children’s and young adult books donated to the library by a wonderful volunteer and patron, enjoying delicious celebrations in the library break room, working with some wonderful teen interns and teen volunteers, getting my picture taken with Clifford the Big Red Dog and Dog Man, helping the Friends of the Eastern Shore Public Library with their annual “Visit with Santa,” dressing up for Halloween with my fellow witch and coworker, “Celebrating Us” in the parking lot of the soon to be new library in Parksley, and so many more.
Thank you everyone, for all of these priceless memories, for every hug, for all of your support, and for your friendship. I can only hope you know how much it all means to me.
Many smiles always, Janice.
