Job Posting: Reference Librarian

One of our two reference librarians will be enjoying her last day of work tomorrow! She is looking forward to retirement, but we are sure going to miss her. She has forgotten more sources than we will ever have in our mental files, and remains calm and patient no matter what the request or obstacle. It will also seem strange to have a staff meeting in which we don't have to dodge her pen as she gestures! There are so many little things she has picked up responsibility for over the years, like cleaning the kitchen towels weekly, that we probably won't realize what half of them are until they suddenly aren't being done.

Somehow, though, we are going to have to find someone to fill her position (who may or may not get responsibility for the towels). Following is the official job posting. If you or anyone you know fits the qualifications and might be interested, you can contact our Personnel Department at 575-439-4399. This is a great place to live and, if we can say it without sounding too biased, a great staff to work with!
