Letter: Walpole will be missed at library

Ms. Becky Walpole, head librarian at the Park Rapids Area Public Library is leaving. Her last day is Thursday, Aug. 18, 2010. Her husband, Rev. Gary Walpole, has been transferred to another church and the family is leaving the Park Rapids area. The entire Walpole family will be missed.

A day of recognition will be Thursday, Aug. 5, 2010. The Library will formally recognize her service at 10:30 a.m. and will be holding an all day open house with cake and drinks for all well wishers and those who want to thank her for all she has done for this community.

Becky has been with the library for 12 years, the last four of which she has been head librarian. A generation of children has been mesmerized by her "story hour" readings and activities. Adults have benefited from her knowledge, research and hard work for all patrons.

Letters of appreciation and gifts in recognition for all she has done for you individually may be sent to: Friends of the Library, 210 1st Street W. Park Rapids, MN 56470.

We have been so blessed by her presence.

Frank E. Moody
