Our warmest thanks to Jean Shaw as she comes to the close of one major part of her professional career and embarks on another. Many of you know or had Jean as the Children's Librarian through the years, and her extensive education, expertise and compassion have changed so many lives. Katie Bosse, who herself was a young attendee of Miss Jean's programs, is assuming duties of youth services, and Jean is picking up cataloging duties as well as other areas in the library where her experience proves invaluable. Thank you, Miss Jean, for all you have given to and done for the young people of this community over the years. We love you!! :) ...
