I just read an email this morning from … about your new adventure. How exciting.
I appreciate you crediting me with a role in this, but you are a gifted, creative and intelligent woman who will make a wonderful librarian on your own. Happy to walk with you these last few years as we served PW and continue to do so. I’ll have to come visit you at LPTS once you get settled. Thinking of you as you prepare to make the move. Hope you and your family have great holidays.

S C – Thats awesome Anita! Congrats on the new position!

B D – Congratulations! This seems to be a great professional fit for you! I know how you have been searching over the past years to find such. Does this mean you will be leaving California for Louisville? If so we will miss your presence in our OC community. You have contributed so much in recent times to the homelessness issues. Thank you for all you do and who you are. I certainly am better for knowing you!

J D – I am so happy for you. Blessings on you and your new journey.

Thanks for keeping us informed and stay in touch.

S K – Gotcha. Thanks and Congratulations. Great talking to you earlier. Will do again asap.

W W – WOW! I guess you got God’s attention for your “dream job/work!!!” I’d guess that you will be doing much of you work on line but then maybe not??? As your time allows, please fill me in…Hope all is well on the home front…

L K – Congrats Anita! Does this mean that you will be relocating to Kentucky?

M C – Congratulations!
