Retirement: Maggie Tarelli-Falcon

After a 30-year library career, 16 years and four months of which was spent at OPL, Maggie Tarelli-Falcon announced her retirement. She celebrated her last day with OPL on June 27.
Tarelli-Falcon had served as assistant library director since August 2008. She also worked as a collection development manager, a branch manager, and librarian in the Arts & Literature department. Though she appreciated different aspects of each position, she was most proud of transitioning OPL’s book collection from fixed locations to one that floats throughout the system.
“The goal is to connect patrons with books. This process allowed us to order a greater selection of titles by sharing them among the different OPL locations,” said Tarelli-Falcon.
Tarelli-Falcon said that she will miss her colleagues more than anything. “There are great people working at OPL,” she said. “We have a lot of history together and much respect.”
In her retirement, Tarelli-Falcon has big plans for travel, volunteer work, and training her dogs for community assistance work. We thank her for her service and wish her all the best!
