The library system has suffered another loss with the retirement of Franklin County Librarian Jo Porter. Jo has been with the library 15 years. She helped bring the library into the 21st century with the formation of the Longleaf Library Consortium for a new library automation system. She helped the library better meet the needs of the community with a complete remodel of the building. While Ms. Jo will be greatly missed, she has made a strong contribution to the community through her library service.
