Cabonne librarian recognised for 35 years of service

Cabonne Council has formally recognised Margaret Lamerton for her contribution and dedication to Molong in her role as Branch Librarian over more than three decades.

Margaret commenced working at the old Orange City Library in McNamara Lane in 1974, before having a break from 1980 and returning to Central West Libraries in 1994.

“With the decision to retire this month, that’s 35 years of working in libraries and 19 of those years spent in Molong,” the Council said in a statement.

Margaret had been the Branch Librarian at Molong since 2004 at the Railway Station building up until its closure due to the flooding in November 2022. Since that time she has continued working as a Library Assistant in Orange.

“Margaret has provided the library members of Molong and surrounding areas a top-quality service, always endeavouring to meet their needs and requests,” the Council said.

“Margaret warmly welcomed many of our visitors to Molong who called into the library, or to look around the Railway Station building, and was a wonderful advocate for our town.”

During her employment, Margaret also supported local opportunities for the community including book clubs, card making groups, children’s reading time and author visits just to name a few.

“Although the new Library is almost ready to be open, unfortunately, Margaret will not see the move back into the new space in the Community Centre but will be able to enjoy the space as a Library visitor.”

“All the best for your retirement Margaret and thank you for your service!”
