Chetco Community Public Library District Board of Directors
Stuart Watkins, Chair

The Chetco Community Public Library District Board of Directors is saddened to inform our library patrons and community that Susana Fernandez, Library Director, has left Brookings to be with her family in Wisconsin. She is seeking care and treatment for cancer.

Susana served the Library District for nearly 30 years and had planned to retire next year. Her leadership is felt every time patrons walk into the library. Her foresight has made the many community-serving library programs and amenities possible. She will be sorely missed in our community.

As announced previously, the Board has temporarily reduced library hours as of September 18 to Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00am to 6:00pm. The Board and library staff found this action necessary due to staff retirements as well as the absence of Susana.

Cards, no other items, addressed to Susana may be left at the library front desk. Courtesy of the Friends of the Library, the Board will see that these cards are forwarded weekly.
