Retirement Reception for Miss Debbie! - Thurs. 9/30 11:30-4:30
As you may know, our beloved ♥♥♥ Miss Debbie ♥♥♥ is retiring at the end of the month! She has been an integral part of Stafford Library for more than 20 years, going back to when we were still located in the old library (now the Historical Society) downtown.

To honor her we will be holding a reception in the coffee bar on her last day, which will be Thursday, September 30th. The reception will begin after her last storytime, so around 11:30, and will be ongoing throughout the day. Please plan to stop in and wish her well.

We also have a card available at the front desk if you would like to sign it and let her know how much she will be missed! ♥♥♥
