Adrie’s Last Day at Falmouth Public Library
December 26, 2014
Today we say a fond farewell to our colleague and friend Adrienne Latimer. We will all miss her hard work, attentive personality, and especially her very fun and contagious laugh.
Many hundreds of programs have been organized and introduced by Adrie. Could there be a Death and Dessert program without her and that truly delightful cake with the blood-dripping knife? Many authors from the Cape and beyond were welcomed by her warm introductions. Surely their book sales increased!
How many patrons were able to find a job under her resume tutelage? Her Wednesday Workshops on resume writing and cover letters were very popular.
Aspiring writers were encouraged and assisted with computer guidance and page formatting by her.
Every year she ordered, displayed and refilled the scores of Federal and State tax forms requested by our patrons.
The Cancer Center collection of brochures and pamphlets has been maintained by Adrie. They have proved to be very helpful and comforting to cancer patients and their families
Several subject collections are ordered by Adrienne, she reviews the library literature, chooses the best titles for our patrons, and assures they are labeled and shelved correctly.
The staff here at FPL, especially the Reference Department, wish her a long and happy retirement. She will be sorely missed.
Although her shoe size is a petite 6, her shoes will be very hard to fill.
