There have been some big changes going on at the Lafayette County & Oxford Public Library in Oxford, MS.
Dorothy Fitts, known as “Dotsy” around town, retired in October after being the Head Librarian since 1968. Ms. Fitts was a strong advocate for literacy and libraries and encouraged several of her staff members over the years to pursue graduate degrees in Library Science. Two of those staff members have now advanced in their careers at the library.
Laura Beth Walker has been promoted from Reference Librarian to Head Librarian. She received her MLS from the University of Alabama in 2001 and has been with the Library since 1997.
Replacing Ms. Walker as Reference Librarian is Corey Vinson. He received his MLS from the University of Mississippi, and has been working as Library Assistant at the Oxford Public Library.
The Lafayette County & Oxford Public Library is a branch of First Regional Library. For more information, visit www.firstregional.org.
