Montague libraries set changing-of-the-guard party
Library trustees, staff and friends plan a public farewell for retiring Montague Public Libraries Director Susan SanSoucie on Wednesday, and a welcome for incoming director David Payne.
The event is scheduled for 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Carnegie Library, 201 Avenue A.
Patrons, co-workers and volunteers are invited to add recollections and mementos of SanSoucie’s 30-plus years at the Montague Public Libraries to a scrapbook.
Halloween will be SanSoucie’s last day.
“Sue has developed a library system that provides well for the needs of all the town. She has also maintained a great relationship with patrons, staff, town employees and especially with others in the Massachusetts library community. Her leadership extends beyond the town and puts Montague on the map as a town supportive of the need for libraries,” trustee Veronica Phaneuf said in a press statement.
