A Fond Farewell in Staff News: Robert

This week marked the end of Robert’s time working at the O’Fallon Public Library. He’s moving on to another job- and we all wish him the best.

We first met Robert while he was a tutor for the SIUE America Reads program. He was so awesome at tutoring, the library extended an invitation for him to join our staff in the summer of 2018. To our delight, he accepted!

As everyone who interacts with him knows- Robert is always wearing a smile and is helpful and kind to others. We are all so grateful for the time we have had with him.

Since COVID, some may remember Robert best from his digital series: “Art with Robert”

We’re certain you’re going to change the world, Robert! Wishing you the best of luck and we’ll see you again soon.
