     Friends of Caestecker Public Library sent Linda DeNell off with a retirement party last week Friday in recognition of her 15 years of service to the library, 13 of which she held the position of library director.

     During the party, DeNell was presented with a ribbon stating she was “Officially Retired,” along with a short speech thanking her for her work and efforts over the years.  DeNell’s  friends and family attended the party, giving her hugs and gifts.
