Best Wishes to Cindy Brant!
Our lovable librarian, Cindy Brant, will be retiring at the end of January. Cindy spent many years at Benzonia Public Library as a patron, became a valuable volunteer in 2017 and transitioned to a staff position in 2018.
Throughout the years Cindy has been a welcoming face at the front desk. She is always ready with a kind word and a heartfelt conversation. She is much loved by the staff and patrons here at the library!
While we will miss Cindy terribly, we are excited for her. Cindy plans to spend her time reading, writing, traveling and spending time with her grandkids.
Congratulations and Happy Trails, Cindy!
