We hit a milestone this past week when one of our library staff celebrated 30 years of work at the Carleton Place Public Library! Congratulations, Shirley!
We gathered Library Board Members, former staff, friends and current staff for a surprise lunch at Ballygiblins. Boy, was she surprised!
It was weeks of hushed conversations and secret plans that poor Shirley had no idea about. For a while, I’m pretty sure she thought either everyone was talking about her behind her back (we were!), or that we were ignoring her. Poor Shirley. But wasn’t this worth all the secrecy?
Here’s to another 30 years, Shirley! (Just kidding…..we only expect you to stay for the next 20. We’re not unreasonable, after all.)
