A Fork in the Road

Last week, I was provisionally offered the position of OPLIN director, and I have provisionally accepted. Nothing will be official until the end of this week, but it appears that my last day here will be September 8.

I’m very excited for this new chapter in my life, of course, but profoundly sad at the end of this one. I love this library. I’ve loved being part of the past 10+ years of transformation, and I cherish the relationships I’ve built here with you. I’m sorry I’m not going to be part of the next 10 years, because they’re going to be fantastic.

Thank you for the past decade. I wouldn’t be ready for this next job if not for what you’ve all allowed me to learn in this one.  This has been the best job, thanks entirely to all of you, and I’ll miss you more than I know how to say.
