Regional Office Staff Member Retires After 37 Years
On September 17, 1980, Terry Balicki joined Wapiti Regional Library for what would become a 37 year career at the Regional Office in Prince Albert.

Initially working in a temporary position, Balicki became a full-time employee in December, 1980. She advanced over time,  ending her career with many years service as Branch Services Supervisor. She officially 'checked out' in early June after a retirement celebration thrown by her co-workers.

"I have worked with a lot of wonderful people during my time at Wapiti," Terry said. "My years there have been enjoyable."

Terry will be missed, but the Regional Office staff wish her all the best in the next stage of her life.

Regional Director Tony Murphy describes Terry's 37 years at Wapiti as a period of "very dedicated service," adding that Terry "was a tireless advocate of library services, and that she measured Wapiti services at all levels by an impressively passionate and "high level" yardstick. She takes an astonishing and inevitably irreplaceable amount of knowledge with her, and will be missed."
