    As a former head of Technical Services at the Tippecanoe County Public Library, I worked with Bonnie for almost 16 years. She did enjoy ordering new materials, adapted well to change, and was a good team member. I can fondly remember her supervising acquisitions, checking materials in, approving invoices, and friendly working with everyone. She will be missed.
