To the Editor:

Within the next few days I will complete my tenure as the Director of the Trumbull Library System.               

As I pack up my many mementos and personal effects, I have had time to reflect on the wonderful years I’ve spent in this community.

I’ve had the pleasure of serving on the Chamber Board, Business and Education Initiative (BEI), the Cable Advisory Committee and TPAUD (Trumbull Partnership Against Underage Drinking and Drugs) as well as be an active member of the Trumbull Rotary Club.  

I’ve enjoyed the opportunities I’ve been given to Read Aloud in the schools and serve as a judge for the Invention Conventions over the years.  But most of all I’ve come to appreciate and respect the dedicated Trumbull Library staff. These men and women are exceptional in customer service and in the willingness to go the extra mile for the people they serve.  I owe them a debt of gratitude for making the Trumbull Library shine. Next time you are in either the Main or the Fairchild Branch, please thank them for their dedication and quality service.  

I leave with many friends, a sense of satisfaction that I’ve made some small difference in my role as director and with an anticipation that the next director under the guidance of your Library Board of Trustees can accomplish far more than I have.  

The Library is a town jewel and residents have spoken loud and clear that they value their town library. It is my hope that the future will be good to the residents of this great town and to its library.

With warmest gratitude for the opportunity to serve you.
Susan J. Horton,
Trumbull Library Director
