This was just posted by Lee on the DMIL list. Good luck to Lee in his retirement. He will be missed.
I will be retiring at the end of this month after 27 years as a federal librarian, and after another six years of non-federal librarianship. I have worked in my time in most different types of libraries: corporate libraries; college centers; public libraries; medical libraries and specialized research libraries in the physical sciences, engineering and even in a museum library of natural history.
It has been a wonderful career, and I have enjoyed working with my many interesting and unique colleagues and library patrons over the years.
And I find that there are some mixed feelings as I leave. While I am looking forward to a new life in retirement, I am also uncertain about my position as “a former librarian.” I will from now on I’ll simply be known as “Mrs. Hadden’s Mr. Hadden.”
I do know I will miss you all.
