ASSISTANT COUNTY LIBRARIAN AMY PAGET RETIRES.
Lafayette, IN – Friday, March 24, 2017 – The Tippecanoe County Public Library (TCPL) announces the retirement of long-time employee Amy Paget. Amy’s 25-year career at TCPL began in 1991 at the Albert A. Wells Memorial Library. In 2004 Amy became the Assistant County Librarian. Additional responsibilities over the years included Head of Youth Services and Head of Extension Services.
“TCPL has greatly benefited from the breadth of skills, professional expertise, and integrity Amy Paget brings to her work and our operations. Many say Amy is a ‘jack of all trades,’ but she is a consummate professional who really helped TCPL day-to-day operations flow smoothly,” said County Librarian Jos N. Holman. “Her talent and fundraising skills were heavily used in her role as Planning and Development Librarian. She served as operational liaison with the Tippecanoe County Public Library Foundation for the past 15 years.
“Amy has been a tremendous resource for the Tippecanoe County Public Library Foundation’s Board of Directors,” said Foundation Board President Tony Albrecht. “Her organizational skills have been invaluable as the Foundation Board works to raise funds to support Library programs and capital needs, as well as growth of the library system. She will be sorely missed, and we wish her well in retirement.”
On her final day at work, Wednesday, April 12, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the public is invited to share memories and good wishes with Amy. This casual event occurs in the Friends of TCPL Conference Room at the Downtown Library. Refreshments will be served.
“Having worked here for more than 25 years, this will be a major staffing change for TCPL,” Holman said. “Although Mrs. Paget cannot be replaced, the Assistant County Librarian position is being advertised nationally and statewide. We wish Amy well in all the future adventures and endeavors she may pursue!”
Amy is active in various community activities and national organizations. She and her family plan to remain in Lafayette for the foreseeable future.
