Nyssa librarian retires after 27 years

NYSSA – Anyone who thinks that libraries are becoming obsolete can take it up with Faith Adams.

“People keep saying libraries are going away,” Adams said. “I say they’re not. They’re just changing.”

Adams’s passion for reading led her to volunteering at the Nyssa Public Library. Then a permanent job opened up and since she enjoyed her volunteer work and her kids were always using the library, she figured she would take the position.

That was 27 years ago.

Adams retired from the library last week, but continues to be a major proponent of its services.

When she started, the library only offered print books. Two decades later, Nyssa locals can rent graphic novels, download audiobooks and e-books, use scanning and fax services, and stop by for strong Wi-Fi.
