Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day “I remember using the old wooden card catalogs,” she said. “I remember signing checkout cards and having a separate room just for all the reference books.  We have moved fast-forward into the 21st century with online catalogs, computers, checkouts and reference databases.”Colvin said she is very blessed to have worked at the Troy Public Library and feels that she is leaving a part of herself behind.“Having had some input into the design of our children’s section of the new library was an honor,” she said. “One of the programs closest to my heart is the tutoring program. I hope that it will be a lasting legacy and continue to benefit the children of Troy and Pike County.”Walking out the door of a place that has meant so much for so many years will not be easy for Colvin.
