Hazel Mackin Community Library Events

for the week of August 11th, 2020

It’s been quite a summer of changes for everyone.  We have missed seeing so many of you since we reopened the library back in June!  Having our summer reading program online has brought a big void in seeing all of the families we are used to having come into the library.  We of course understand, but we want you to know we miss seeing the kids that have grown so much over the summer, hearing about what vacations people have enjoyed and the new family members that have been added- including the pet stories!

If COVID has taught us anything, we for sure understand how quickly life changes. Some changes have been good and some have come with great difficulty.  As you may be aware, I have had medical conditions that led to two surgeries this summer. My surgeon has made it clear that I will be unable to continue my duties as Director per requirements of this position. In the last two months I have found that I have more surgeries ahead of me with many more months of recovery. I’ll be fine!  Everyone has things to deal with and this is just my thing for now. However, with this information, I have made the incredibly difficult and necessary decision to resign from my position as Director.

I have been at the Hazel Mackin Community Library for nine years and I have learned so much during that time.  The Library really became the community center for our little town.  It became the place to learn new skills, grow incredible friendships and gain knowledge on so many things.  I’m so thankful that I have the best staff that has risen to the challenges to be able to bring the great programs and classes to you.  I do hope those wonderful experiences will stay with you and encourage you to come back when we are finally able to offer programs in person again. 

Thank you for the privilege of being able to serve you.   It has been quite a ride and now that the winds of change have moved me along, I will always be thankful for the friendships and memories.
