Celebrating Our Staff

Lauren Graduates

by Sarah Sachs, Public Service Manager @ PPL

If you come to the library in the evening or on Saturday, you know Lauren Buckley. She’s the cheerful, helpful young woman who pretty much runs things during those times. Here’s the surprising thing, though - Lauren just recently turned eighteen years old; she graduated from Colton Pierrepont Central School last Friday night. We, her work family, are so proud.

So even though we’ve already given her an award for being an Outstanding Student Worker and we’ve had a chance to celebrate Lauren with her family and friends, we also share this small tribute. When you see her, express yourself, because she’s off to SUNY Plattsburgh in a month or so. We’ve all been richer for having her at PPL for a year.

Love you, Lauren!
