In case you haven’t heard, longtime Castleton Public Library librarian Darlene Miller was terminated effective immediately on Saturday, Sept. 19. No one knows the full details, since the Library Board would not share them with us during a meeting earlier this week, but I, and many other Castleton residents do know this: we want our librarian back!
Mrs. Miller could be termed the glue that holds this town together. She organizes summer reading programs; is a fixture at Castleton Elementary School morning programs; reaches out to the aged in our community with books, videos and other library materials; and is just an all-around whirlwind of energy and excitement when it comes to all things library. For anyone who didn’t hear last year, our tiny Castleton Public Library was voted 1st Runner Up for the 2008 “Best Small Library in America” by the Library Journal & the Gates Foundation. Not bad for Castleton, huh?
Do you want our librarian back as well? I encourage you to share your views below. Let’s do what we can to GET OUR LIBRARIAN BACK!!! Mrs. Miller, Castleton misses your energy!
