Happy retirement, Pat!

Pat-WadePat Wade started at Campbell County Public Library on June 13, 1988, driving the Bookmobile to day care centers and home-bound people throughout the area. Pat has had numerous other roles, including page supervisor and, since June 2003, Cold Spring Circulation Supervisor. At times, she’s also been an electrician and plumber.

According to Cold Spring Circulation Clerk Maggie Gosney, Pat even once used a snow shovel to run off a snake from a mallard duck’s nest by the staff entrance.

Pat’s long career of serving patrons ended Nov. 30 when she retired. Pat says her favorite role was driving the Bookmobile. “It was just fun to get outside and see the county and see all the people,” she recalls. Pat also cherishes having the opportunity as a supervisor to “teach young people how to work,” including high school and college-age kids, in their first-ever jobs.

Pat plans to rest for a couple months, then do some traveling with her husband, Alan. Pat also will continue as a member of the Cup of Crime Book Club she founded, so even though she’s retired, she won’t be a stranger.

Congrats and best wishes, Pat!
