A hard working group of branch library managers and regional staff. Great colleagues, and some fine friends. We accomplished a lot with our 20 libraries in East Region. Fond memories!
I was the Regional Administrator for East Region, in the San Gabriel Valley, 20 libraries, from 1980-1998. My office was at the West Covina Regional Library.
At the time the above photograph was taken we were all at the Rowland Heights library attending the monthly Branch Managers meeting. Back then, Mike McClintock and Billie Frierson were assistant administrators. Judy Valcho, Linda Siggins and Kay Simonetti were regional coordinators; and Elizabeth Koller was the office manager.
From my memory in 2018.
