Many gathered at the Anderson Public Library yesterday to celebrate the retirement of outreach specialist, Deborah Perry.
Hosted by both the library and the friends of the library, a special reception was held to celebrate Deborah’s 27 years of service. During the event, Deborah was presented with a special plaque by library board of trustees president, Rachel Dockal.
“Thank you so much, we are so grateful,” Rachel said. “Congratulations on your retirement, and we hope you enjoy every minute of it.”
In addition, she was presented with a special card and a gift by the staff of the library. Afterwards, she read a story and played a song for everyone in attendance.
Library director, Pam Marks, said during the celebration, “As a librarian, Deborah is exceptional because she cares about people. I think that’s why she has been such a huge success as an outreach librarian.”
As Deborah looks to retire at the end of August, she plans to help more with the friends of the library. She also would like to thank everything that she has worked with over the years.
