Farewell to South Central Regional Librarian Liz Forester

A change is on the way at the South Central Regional Library, as Altona Branch Librarian Liz Forester is retiring.  Liz shared the news with the Library Board recently and is planning for a departure before year end.  Liz and Al Friesen sat down to talk about her time leading a community institution and what drew her to the SCRL.

By the way, even after 18 or so years in the Altona Library, despite being in the library all this time, Liz has fallen behind in her reading and is looking forward sitting down with her favourite author, Saskatchewan's W O Mitchell. Thanks for your enthusiasm Liz
