“Despite my love of books as a child I never once thought about working in libraries. I can thank Dorothy Carpenter for having nudged me in that direction. Twelve years later I have earned a master’s in library and information science and have gained a wealth of experience that I will take with me as I move on to my next career. I’m excited about possibly doing something completely different; I’m ready for it,” she said. “One of my dreams is to become an executive assistant or office manager, jobs that capitalize on the things I enjoyed most with my assistant director duties. I currently live in Eatonton and my husband and I do plan on moving to the metro area for better opportunities.”
Brown wished Reese and Davidson good luck in their future endeavors on behalf of the board of trustees.
“[Reese] and [Davidson] have done an excellent job. They were very good with fundraising and helping us start the branch out at the lake,” she said. “We thank the public for their support and hope we can continue to offer the kind of service as we have in the past. We have excellent library staff and we’re looking forward to improving our services and offering different kinds of services as well.”
