When the Multnomah County Library System celebrated 150 years in 2014, librarian Carol Rogers could make the unique claim of being there for nearly a third of that history.
On Oct. 19, Rogers celebrated her 50th anniversary with the library. Her coworkers gave her a crown and purple cape to wear as she walked down the grand staircase of Portland’s Central Library, where she’s spent 44 of her working years.
Today, Rogers is a supervisor at Central Library, where she oversees clerks and the movement of materials. At 69, she isn’t ready to retire. She wants to keep learning.
