Don’t Forget!

Jane Larson’s Retirement reception has been rescheduled for this Friday, December 9th from 3-6 pm.


The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library staff and Board of Trustees are very pleased to share a planned public reception honoring the retirement of long-time Library Director, Jane A. Larson, scheduled for Friday, November 18th from 3 – 6 pm. After a serious year-long illness, and continuing to recover at home in Meckling, Larson is looking forward to saying a proper goodbye to colleagues and patrons. Jane served the community as Director of the Library for 32 years. In that time, she steered the Library through enormous change and growth, including overseeing a major renovation and expansion of the Library, completed in 2013. Anne Dunham, Friends of the Vermillion Public Library long-time volunteer, is looking forward to thanking Larson. “Jane has been the face of the Library for over 30 years. She has been greatly missed.”
“We’re excited to have this opportunity to thank Jane for her years of dedicated service to the Vermillion Public Library, and for all she achieved while she was here. We encourage friends, acquaintances, and community-members to stop by and visit with Jane during her reception,” states incoming Library Director, Daniel Burniston.
The reception is free and open to the public, and will take place in the Kozak Community Room.
