DUVALL–After 30 years with the King County Library System, Katherine Huber, Duvall Library’s children’s librarian, has retired.
Numerous friends, colleagues and library patrons celebrated with her at a retirement party held Aug. 29.
During the get-together, the Duvall Friends of the Library announced the establishment of the Katherine Huber Children’s Programming Fund for Duvall, Carnation and Skykomish libraries with an initial contribution of $5,000.
Mrs. Huber says she plans to stay active with the Friends of the Library and will continue to host "Storytimes" for children at Main Street Books in Monroe. She joked she is not being "put out to pasture," although her home near Woodinville has five acres of pasture which holds two beef cows along with numerous buttercups she has vowed to clean up.
She says she does most of the work at the place herself, remarking at the retirement party that, "I want people to say, ‘She died with a clean house and a nice pasture.’"
