Pittsburgh: “Two Epic Librarians Close the Books on Their Carnegie Careers of 97 Years — Sort Of”
From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh employees and friends of Julie Kuchta and Denise Graham stopped by to celebrate their long careers, reminisce a bit and wish them well at a retirement party at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Main’s South Wing Reading Room on Aug. 25.
They retired Friday, Sept. 2 after a combined 97 years of service, both advancing from clerks to managers. Both say they loved every day of their versatile roles in library science. And even though times have changed, and technology has greatly enhanced the services that libraries provide, they both say their relationships with people is what made the difference in their job satisfaction.
