“It’s just time,” she said.

Mrs. Adams will step down from the position at the end of July. She said the library board is working on a job description for the position and will be advertising for it soon.

Prior to answering an advertisement in the newspaper for the assistant librarian position, Mrs. Adams worked in childcare for 14 years. It’s no surprise then that working with the children she encountered at the library has been her favorite aspect of her job.

“I’ve loved the kids. Doing story time, family nights, Dr. Seuss. The kids are always so appreciative and so excited to have a story read,” she said.

Mrs. Adams said in her 25-year career the biggest changes at the library have been automation and technology changes.

“Being connected to other libraries and being able to draw from their resources has also been huge,” she added.

Looking forward to retirement, Mrs. Adams said she has plans to spend more time with her grandchildren.

“I just don’t want to miss things,” she said. “I also enjoy gardening. It will be something new.”
