ALBION – In the fall of 1960, two longtime employees of Swan Library retired. Seated in front is Miss Inez Warner, assistant librarian, retiring after 41 years.

In back are, left to right: Francis H. Blake Sr., president of the board of trustees; Miss Lucy Fancher, retiring after 17 years as librarian; John D. Robinson, Albion mayor; and Joan Farnsworth, library staff.

At the time this picture was taken a reception was tendered for these dedicated servants.
