HESPERIA — Employees of Hesperia Community Library said a fond farewell to long-time clerk Heather Fessenden last Saturday, Sept 26.  

Fessenden, who began her library career in 1998, will retire in early October. She participated in Summer Reading, Story Time and a variety of other library programs. She was also part of the staff that moved the library to a temporary location and then into the remodeled library in 2002.  

“Heather will miss the patrons and working on library projects, but she will now be able to sew any time she wants to,” said Library Director Kay Brennan.

In addition to sewing, Heather is looking forward to spending time with her family and stopping in the library as a patron.

The staff celebrated this milestone with a dinner and games.
