Jefferson County Public Library trustee Lynne Heinekamp will be retiring from the board effective Jan. 1, she announced last week.
Heinekamp, whose term would have expired on Sept. 30, 2012, cited personal reasons for the decision, namely that she will be caring for her 3-year-old great grandson.
“It was with a heavy heart, and I’ve loved it all,” Heinekamp said during a Dec. 8 board meeting. “But this is necessary. I need to be home.”
County commissioners appointed Heinekamp to the seven-member library board in 2009.
