On Tuesday, Sept. 3, between 10 am and 5 pm the West Tisbury library will celebrate their beloved children’s librarian Nelia Decker on her last day at the library. Decker will be retiring after 25 years of nurturing young readers’ curiosity, creativity, love for nature, and compassion for others, a release from the library says. Drop by the library to congratulate and thank Nelia for all she has done to make the library a sanctuary for children to read and learn. 

There will be a free lunch served from 12 to 1 pm and a cake to share at 4 pm. Visitors can also welcome the library’s new children’s librarian, Alexandra Pratt, who has been a member of the library’s circulation staff for several years. This day-long celebration is free and open to the public.
