Albertsons Library and the University community extended heartfelt thanks for over six combined decades of service to Reference Librarians Beverly Miller and Adrien Taylor, on September 28th and October 9th, respectively.
During Beverly's thirty-eight years at Albertsons Library she was responsible for a wide variety of subject areas for collection development. Beverly provided thousands of hours of reference service and bibliographic instruction, served as a member of numerous library committees and was involved in many campus activities to promote the Library and its resources.
Adrien's service to the Library, the University and the community has been varied and notable. As Coordinator of Reference Services he helped guide the library and its service to patrons.
He has been a mentor to all new librarians, whether assigned as such or just the day to day teaching to help each person be the best librarian they can be.
Adrien has participated on numerous Library and University committees throughout his years here at Albertsons Library. And according to Adrien, he has "enjoyed every moment".
Beverly and Adrien have been the glue for the Library over the many, many years they've served us all, patrons and staff alike. We will miss them immensely and hope they both drop in from time to time to say hello (and show us where that particular book is they mentioned one time).
Beverly retired on September 29th and is off and running on her new adventure.
Adrien retires October 17th, so for the next week be sure and drop in to say "hey", take a gander at his photos, and sign his memory book at the Reference Desk with any special thoughts or memories of Adrien over the years.
