A longtime book worm is calling it a career.
Rita Turtle, the CEO and Chief Librarian for the Quinte West Public Library is retiring at year’s end.
She began working at the Trenton Public Library in 1991 and became CEO in ’96.
Her achievements include overseeing the implementation of two Integrated Library Systems and the design and build of two new libraries in the amalgamated municipality.
Turtle says she will assist the Board of Directors in recruiting a new CEO and assisting them in the transition.
