Carrington to retire at library

SoVaNow.com / March 13, 2014
Library board members were advised on Tuesday that long-time employee Julia Carrington will be retiring at the end of this month. “I don’t know how we’ll manage without her,” said board member Martha Thompson. “She probably knows more about this library than anyone else.”

Following concerns that were raised at last month’s meeting about whether or not to allow drinks in the library, it was decided that drinks with lids or caps might be brought in, but would not be allowed near any computers or electronics. Library Director Jay Stephens reported that he had surveyed other libraries and found that most allowed patrons to bring in drinks that had lids or caps.

Trustees once again discussed the possibility of joining in a regional system with the one which is currently accepting partners – that of Lynchburg and Campbell County — being too close to completion for their consideration.

Stephens also reported that he will be discussing the possibility of moving the law library to the Halifax branch this week.

Stephens and South Boston Branch Manager Chris Thompson reviewed plans for upcoming programs which include the Summer Reading Program and advanced computer classes. Stephens said the Halifax Library will be hosting an “After Hours with the Author” program on Tuesday, March 25 featuring Randolph College professor Bunny Goodjohn who will discuss her book “Sticklebacks and Snow Globes.”

Trustees were asked to consider the updated hiring policy which they will discuss at the April meeting.

The library will also be participating in the Earth Day celebration in the town of Halifax on April 26 as well as hosting a Victorian tea at the South Boston Museum in late April.
