Retirement: Evelyn Bingel

Evelyn Bingel was drawn to the library profession because she was under the assumption that everything in libraries was organized and orderly. While that’s true to an extent, Bingel now calls that idea “bizarre,” because there are many different ways in which one book can be categorized. She has probably discovered them all in her 35-year career as a librarian!
After 25 years with OPL, Bingel has announced her November 4 retirement. “It’s the right time. I’ve hit a milestone work anniversary and birthday this year, and I want to enjoy my retirement while I am healthy.”
Bingel has worked in adult services throughout her time at OPL, most recently at Bess Johnson Elkhorn Branch.
In retirement, Bingel plans to make use of a gym membership, travel, and spend time with her family – which includes seven grandchildren! Join us in wishing her well!
