Director Retirement
Cindy Sefton retired from the College community on August 1, 2020. Her retirement was set in motion long before the pandemic & we regret not being able to give her the sendoff she deserves. Myra Justus, our Circulation Coordinator, is Interim Director & may be contacted for administrative issues & answers on library policies & procedures. Faculty with questions regarding library instruction, collection development, or web resources should continue to contact Kathleen Pickens. Thank you!
