We would like to congratulate Jill Boggs Brust on her 30th anniversary at OhioNET. Her knowledge of our members has been a treasure to us over the years. Many of you have spoken with Jill on the phone or enjoyed her company on our library visits or received a hearty handshake (or hug) from her at a library conference.

Although we selfishly would like to keep Jill for 30 more years, we know that her husband Larry and her Yorkshire Terrier Buster and her cat Callie might object. Nonetheless, we wish Jill a Happy Anniversary and thank her for 30 years of service to OhioNET and for her continued service into the future.

Thank you, Jill!
