Menges retires after 40 years of service at New Albany-Floyd County library

“She truly is a treasure,” said Rose Frost, director of the library.



“When I came we had typewriters. Now they [patrons] don’t know what they [typewriters] are,” she said. “There have been a lot of changes through the years.”

Menges received several cards and gifts, including the George Morrison print of downtown New Albany, as viewed from Silver Hills, from the library staff.

“She has been very influential in how we do our work in the Indiana Room,” said Paulette Gibbs, reference services manager at the library. “She is the foundation. She has always expressed to me a quiet dignity and wealth of knowledge.”

Matt Eidem, the first-ever archivist for the Indiana Room, has been on the job for seven months and said Menges has been extremely helpful getting him acquainted with New Albany and Floyd County history.

“You couldn’t ask for a better person to learn from,” he said.
