On March 13, 2016 the board members received an E-mail from Andrea, giving her two-week notice:

Hello everyone,

I am emailing you all today to let you know that I have decided to pursue full time work and will be putting in my two week’s notice as of today.  I am grateful for the opportunity you gave me to work and learn here at the Rippey Public Library.  It was a tough decision to make, but in the end, full time income and benefits are what my family needs most at this time. 

Sarah Killgore has been in touch with me the last few months and has mentioned that she would be interested in returning to work at the library. 

Thank you again for everything,

Andrea Williams

To meet the deadlines for the papers, the ad for a new librarian was created and approved by E-mail to put them into the Scranton Journal and Jefferson Bee for two weeks. The Greene County News Online published the ad within my Rippey News but here is her options going forward.  We can discuss this at the meeting on March 28.

Jean Borgeson, Secretary
