Minor error in this article in that we did not move to Oregon from Ohio, certainly not directly! Transcription follows.

Jefferson County's librarian of the past three years, Cathy Morgan, has moved to Colfax, Wash., following her last day at work Friday.

Morgan's husband, Gerry, accepted a position as parts manager for Jones Truck and Implement there.  In Madras, he worked as parts manager at the Jefferson County Co=op.

The Morgans moved to Madras six years ago from Ohio.  Cathy Morgan, who has a master's of library science, worked previously as a librarian in Maine, where she met her husband.  She hopes to get back into library work in Colfax.

Morgan has been replaced temporarily by Debbie Stubbe, who will return to George Fox College as a senior in the fall.  Stubbe had previously worked at the library for two years as assistant.  She is majoring in elementary education at the Newburg college.

The library is currently taking applications for a permanent librarian.

As librarian, Morgan encouraged an active Friend of the Library group, added a computer for community use, and developed more community support of the summer reading program.

She also added books and cassettes for children, as well as cameras, to the library's check-out supplies, and began using both adult and youth volunteers in the library.

I am pleased with the support and help of the community here," she said last week.  "This is a wonderful library because people support it."
