Janet’s Last Day- 30 December 2013

I would like to take this opportunity, on the eve of Janet’s last working day at the Carleton Place Public Library, to say that I believe Janet always rose to the occasion, and enjoyed the hurly burly of it all – and her ability to make it all come together was always a source of pride. She thrived on adversity as much as on the multitude of successes enjoyed by the library over the years. From the smallest, inconsequential detail, like making schedule changes due to winter storms or staff illness, to orchestrating the mammoth rebuilding of the library after the fire of 1986, Janet was there, doing her job and working, along with all of her staff, to make a strong and vibrant library for the Carleton Place community.  Janet would see the wider picture and put it all into perspective. This, along with her compassion for others, was and is, her greatest asset. We will miss Janet, but she has certainly earned a happy, healthy, and carefree retirement!
Best wishes for the future, Janet.
