  2. 2. I am writing to let you know that I will retire as Executive Director of the Westerville Public Library on May 31, 2017, after a successor is chosen. There is never a perfect time for this type of transition, but now is the right time. For the past twenty-eight years, I have had the privilege to serve as your Executive Director. My time here has been the most rewarding, challenging, and exhilarating of my professional life. I have been honored to work with passionate people who invest in making our community an even better place to live, work and play. I am enormously proud of the work we’ve done together over the last 28 years. We have grown from a small community library to a nationally recognized library system, consistently ranked among the very best in the country. I feel good about playing a role in that success and committed 100 percent of my energies to that success. I am excited by our continuing mission of empowering the community and customers, and believe strongly in our future success. I am grateful to the countless people I have worked with during my time here who have taught me so much. They have been passionate board members, staff and volunteers who love our community and have worked tirelessly for the success of our beloved library. I'm also indebted to our remarkable young staff members who inspire me with their wonder and passion for our future. The privilege of leading this organization is an honor I will always cherish.
