Arcanum Public Library Holding Retirement Open House for Director

Marilyn Walden, the Arcanum Public Library Director, will be retiring at the end of this year. There will be a reception on December 15 from 2 to 7:00 p.m. to honor her 30 years of service. Marilyn started as a circulation clerk and transitioned to the director role 16 years ago, after spending time as the Associate Director. She has seen a number of changes during her time at the library, including a major addition, automation, and joining the COOL consortium. The consortium offers improved services to patrons, including access to the materials of all consortium libraries, the ability to use their library card at any of them, and return materials at member libraries. The nearest COOL libraries are Worch Memorial in Versailles and J.R. Clarke in Covington. The staff are excited about the new app to give easier access, just search the app store for “cool library”.

In addition to the reception on December 15, Santa will also be visiting from 5 to 7:30 p.m. and there will be crafts for the kids. Be sure to see the gingerbread house contest entries in the display cases and pick up your copy of the annual cookbook. Other current programs include Storytime, AfterWords, and TNT “Teens and Tweens”.

Please stop by and wish Marilyn well.
