A farewell message from Faith Lee:
Falmouth Public Library staff and patrons have a special place in my heart.
I have been a reference librarian at the Main Library since the day the building reopened after renovations in March, 2008. My initial unpaid internship for library school quickly became a paying part-time job, then a full time career. My internship goal was to acquire reference skills in order to be an art librarian in an academic library. However, I quickly tossed that idea aside once I got to know my colleagues and Falmouth Public Library patrons. I realized a public library is WHERE IT’S AT and this one in particular, is a gem. I love helping people of all ages with a wide variety of library needs. (Walking or biking to work had its attraction too.)
It has been a highly rewarding career and one that I am quite proud of, but now it is time for me to retire. My last day is February 19, 2021. I am terribly camera shy, so instead of a shot of my mug, I am posting this sunflower I knitted for the Library Yarns exhibit I organized in 2016. It adorned the reference desk where I have spent many fascinating hours helping Falmouth patrons with their library needs.
Thank you everyone who has made my time at FPL so wonderful. Farewell!
Now, let’s see what the next chapter reveals …
