Vi Kelley

I’m saddened to hear of the passing this week of Vi Kelley. She hired me for my first library job back in 1997. It was at the High Point Public Library as a part time circulation assistant.  I didn’t even apply for the job, I applied to volunteer there because I wanted to see what a library was like before I applied to Library school. They happened to have an opening and she called me in for an interview. She told me “I normally don’t hire people I know (we attended the same church) but I think you will do a good job.” She retired less than a year later. I don’t think it was because of me…

It’s almost 20 years later and I’m still working in libraries. Thank you Vi for giving me the opportunity
