In an invitation created to look like the check out cards that used to be located in the front of the library books for borrowing, an announcement was made for the retirement party of Virginia Holsten. Vinton's librarian for the past 35 years, Virginia will close the book on her career as one of the most relaxed librarians Vinton has seen.

EXCITING NEWS: The Library will be opening June 15th! Please use the North Door at this time.

Mon-Thurs 9-6
Friday 9-4
Sat 9-12

We are asking people to wear a mask and to sanitize as you walk in the North Door. We can only allow 10 people per floor to allow for social distancing and seating/newspapers will not be available at this time.

Congratulations on the ending of one chapter and the start of another. I sure hope this next chapter is ranked in the top 10.

I can’t make your “check out” but wanted you to know that you have been a wonderful asset to our library and our community. Enjoy this next phase of your life.
Who is going to tell me what books I would like and should read now?? I will miss your wit but wish you all the best.

Have a relaxing and blessed retirement ! Pat Hansen, my mother-in-law, appreciated getting her grocery bag full of novels to read, at times hand-picked by you. That meant a lot to her. Thank you Virginia for all you have done for the library and the community.
