Having read the Tuesday, Sept. 2 article in the Herald about the new director, we would like to join others welcoming Abby Noland to the Rutland Library and the Rutland community and thank her for reminding us what a special place we live in. As lifelong Rutlanders, we appreciate her thorough research on a place to relocate and her observations about our state and city. Sometimes it takes a newcomer to point out the obvious good things in our own hometown.
All the best, Ms. Noland. We’ll see you at the library.
And thank you, Paula Baker, for your years of service.
