Joyce was one of the first branch managers to establish a Read Together program. The community reading program became very popular and inmates who regularly attended the programs frequently asked what the next book would be.
Last year Joyce fought, and beat, cancer! While undergoing treatment she kept the Airway Heights Corrections Center open, an indication of her dedication toward library service to prisoners.
Her manager Laura Sherbo summarized Joyce’s leadership role as “leading by example.”
Bob Fendler will step in on an interim appointment to manage the Airway Heights branch.
Congratulations, Joyce. Enjoy your retirement.
