Join us in the Children’s Room as we wish our beloved Children’s Librarian, Carol McFadden, a fond farewell as she embarks on a new adventure: retirement! For 12 years, she has been an integral part of the Patten Free Library. Since 2007, Carol has offered over 3,246 children’s programs with over 57,810 in attendance! She has been an inspiration for young readers and has provided a warm and welcoming space where fun and good times are as important as reading. We hope you will come by and visit on her last day, enjoy some cake, and sign Carol’s memory book so she can take us all with her in this next chapter of her life.
