To the Editor:
I would like the Newtown community to know why, after 15 years, I am no longer to be found at the reference desk of the C.H. Booth Library.
On Friday, August 3, as I was preparing to head out on vacation, the director informed me that my job as reference librarian was eliminated as of August 10. As part of the restructuring of the physical space and staffing, I was offered an alternate position which I declined.
I am sorry I did not have the opportunity to say goodbye to patrons or staff. It has been my good fortune to have worked with fine colleagues and a pleasure to have served the many wonderful people in my hometown.
