The staff of the Ellsworth Public Library was pleasantly surprised to have Marie Davis (who retired in March) join us this morning for our staff meeting. The director, Charlene Churchill, had a surprise for Marie, as well. Charlene presented the newly retired librarian with this certificate:
In case you can’t read the scripty font, it says:
Be it known to all that We, the Members of the Senate and House of Representatives, join in recognizing Marie Davis, of Ellsworth, on her retirement as the Head Circulation Librarian of Ellsworth Public Library after 18 years of service to the town. Ms. Davis also worked at the Charles Knowlton Elementary School Library before starting at Ellsworth Public Library. We send her our appreciation for her 20 years of library work and we send her our best wishes on her retirement; And be it ordered that this official expression of sentiment be sent forthwith on behalf of the 125th Legislature and the people of the State of Maine.
The document was signed by the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House, the Secretary of the Senate, and the Clerk of the House.
It’s always nice to recognize people for their hard work and dedication. Thank you again, Marie, for everything you have done for the library!
