South Regional Library Librarian Amanda Abright announced her last day with the Montgomery County Memorial Library System Aug. 16.
“I am reaching out to tell you that today is my last day at South Regional Library,” Abright said in a statement. “I am a bundle of emotions: happy, excited, butterflies in my stomach about my new adventure in a new career and sad, melancholy, and nostalgic about missing all of the wonderful people I have met through programming at the library these past three years. It was been a wonderful time.”
With her departure, Abright—who was in charge of adult programming—said until a new librarian is hired, all future adult programs will be canceled except the following:
