On Thursday, August 4th from 2-4 pm, the Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library will host a public reception for retiring staff member Shelly Koller. Says Acting Director Wendy Nilson, “Shelly has been the heart & soul of the library and will be greatly missed.”
Shelly Koller joined the staff at the Library in 1991 as the Circulation Supervisor. In her time with the organization she has seen a number of profound changes take place within the Library, from the introduction of digitized records, to the implementation of various state-wide searchable databases, to the major renovation and expansion which took place in 2013. She is one of the most recognizable faces in the library due to her position at the Circulation Desk, and is the staff member with whom the vast majority of patrons interact during their visits. “Jane Larson hired me in the 1991 and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work at the Library. I will truly miss my job, all the wonderful patrons I have met, and the friendships I’ve made over the years.”
Patrons and the public are encouraged to drop by during the reception, which will be held in the Kozak Community Room.
