Dear Patrons,

We go through seasons of change and now at the library we’re doing that.
Our Youth Services Librarian is moving on to new challenges.
I am grateful for all that she has done for this library, this community, this staff, and me.
We are going to miss her greatly. I wish her well in her new adventures.
I have confidence that she will do great things in all that she does.
She has a few words to say to you;                          Lillie Huckaby  Library Director


Hello Library Customers,

I am saddened to inform you that I will be leaving the Chickasha Public Library as I have accepted a position at another library. Therefore, September 16 will be my last day. I have been honored to serve you over the past seven years.

Some of my favorite memories over the years have been presenting Storytimes and Summer Reading programs and meeting community members during outreach events!

I wish you all the best and happy reading!

- Courtney Mayall, Youth Services Librarian
