Thanks to Rich Church for many years of service and many miles of books shelved.
Tomorrow, Thursday June 24th is Rich’s last day of work in LIS. At his request, we are not organizing an official send-off, but he’ll be around all morning if you want to stop by to wish him well before he hits the trail in search of new adventures.
