Gene retired from the Dublin Library in March so a grand celebration to honor him was held at the Library. A crossword puzzle and a Jeopardy-like game that described Gene and tables decorated like golf links (his favorite sport) set the mood for his party. Thirty years worth of memories were recalled as he was toasted and roasted with much hilarity. Gene enjoyed visiting with party attendees who included fellow retired folk, family and current Alameda County Library employees. Since March, Gene has been sighted at the Dublin Library on occasional Thursdays picking up holds and visiting with his favorite library staff members.
