Join us as we celebrate the retirement of Sue Higgins, CEO of the North Grenville Public Library [NGPL]. After 27 years of public service, Sue is stepping down. Mark Wednesday June 13, from 1:00 to 3:00, on your calendars. Refreshments, cake and other light snacks will be provided in the Tallman Room of the North Grenville Public Library.
Sue has been a ever-present figure in the wonderful growth of library services in North Grenville during her tenure with the North Grenville Public Library, even before North Grenville came into being! Under her supervision, the community has not only seen the introduction of a wide variety of new library services, but also the building of the central Library on Prescott Street in Kemptville.
In the past 27 years, the role played by the local library in the community has been revolutionised, with an increasing number of on-line options, in-house programs, and services that reach beyond the North Grenville area. For example, in connection with the Ottawa Museum Network (OMN) and the Canadian Federal Government, Department of Canadian Heritage, the NGPL offer free family passes for many of the museums found in Ottawa and the Ottawa area.
Facilities like the Tallman Room at the Library, where the Retirement Celebration will take place, is a wonderful meeting place for many other groups and activities outside of regular library events. Youngsters of Yore, Sarah’s Circle, community meetings and many other events take place there, making the NGPL headquarters a vital centre for residents.
Sue Higgins has overseen an amazing change in the role of the NGPL during her time as CEO, and her retirement marks the end of an era and the culmination of a very successful career. Be sure to drop by on June 13 to say thanks and farwell.
