Connie Embry retires after 48 years at the Butler County Public Library
Connie Embry has retired after 48 years of connecting patrons with books, videos, and whatever they sought from the Butler County Public Library.
“I started in the days of this thing called the card catalog, and then we automated. But it's also been exciting to see the evolution of E-Books, and databases," Embry said.
Connie started working at the library at the age of 16 through a school program. She continued to work during the summers and two hours each day after school.
In 1973 she graduated from Butler County High School and was hired for a part-time position.
"My favorite job working at the library was organizing the story hour program for 3-5-year olds. I did this program for many years," said Embry.
Connie started working full time in 1974. She worked in several different positions, but serving people was her passion.
"I enjoyed seeing patrons coming in the library and being able to help them in any way I could. I will miss seeing all the faces coming to the library," added Embry.
Her primary position, prior to retiring, was cataloging new and donated books and materials and working the circulation desk.
"The library will always be a significant part of my life, and I will miss everyone. I want to thank everyone for the wonderful memories, friendly faces, and relationships I have made during my 48 years at the Butler County Public Library", said Embry.
