Farewell to the Library Director

I made a bittersweet phone call this morning. Today is the last work day for Chuck Flaherty, the retiring Library Director of The Public Library of Brookline. It seemed to me as the chair of the Trustees, and therefore the de facto representative of Chuck's supervisors, I should call him and wish him well. It is true that there have been quite a few farewell events for Chuck this month, but when he walks out the door of the main library this afternoon the reins will be finally passed to the new director.

I've said many nice things about Chuck at his farewell events. He will be missed a great deal by all of us connected in any way to the Brookline library.
