I want to publicly thank Barbara Doepker for her 27 years of service to the Three Oaks Township Public Library and congratulate her on her upcoming retirement.
During Barb’s tenure she experienced moving from the library’s previous location on Oak Street to its current location, transferring and upgrading the library’s entire collection to computerized records and working with four library directors. She has spent countless hours cataloging items, shelved a seemingly endless number of books, stamped an untold number of date due slips and answered a myriad of reader inquiries. While doing all this, she has touched lives and formed everlasting friendships. I have relied heavily on her and she has taught me many things. I will greatly miss her.
The public is invited to celebrate with Barbara and her library colleagues on Thursday, May 30, from 12:00 noon to 7:00 p.m. as we share cake and tears and bid Barb a fond farewell.
