It is with great sadness that we announce that Assistant Director Roberta Jordan retired on December 16, 2022. Roberta has worked at PFL since 2008. She started in interlibrary loan, then moved to reference, then became the Outreach & Instruction Librarian and Teen Services Coordinator, and finally Assistant Director. She was instrumental in creating services and programs for teens (who can forget the fabulous haunted houses?) and has developed a technology program that includes Book-a-Librarian and outreach to residents of Bath Housing facilities. She is beloved by staff and patrons and will be deeply missed.
If you would like to make a gift to PFL in honor of Roberta, please click here or mail a check to the Development Office. At Roberta’s request, funds given will be used to replace the ageing floor in the staff breakroom.
We wish Roberta well as she begins her new chapter.
