As President of Downingtown Library Board of Directors, it is my duty to announce the retirement of our dear friend and Library Director, Karen Miller. Karen has served as our Director for 24 years , and has done double duty as our Children’s Librarian for 26 years. Karen has been an extraordinary asset to the Library, and is loved by many patrons, young and old. We are sad to see her go, but wish her the best as she will be enjoying well-deserved time off with her family beginning in March 2017.

We are currently looking to fill the position of Downingtown Library Director, and the job posting is attached.

Sincerely, Deborah Miles
