Of the half century since the Douglas County Public Library opened, Senior Library Technician Dan Doyle has worked 30 years.

The only current library employee to have served under every director in the library’s history, he’s the first to be recognized for 30 years, according to county Public Information Office Melissa Blosser.

Doyle was hired on July 21, 1987, by the library’s first director, Yvonne Sadler.

He is the coordinator of the library’s Homebound Services program, which delivers books and other materials to Douglas County residents who are permanently or temporarily homebound.

“Dan is very knowledgeable and has a natural talent for working with the public,” Library Director Amy Dodson said. “He always provides excellent service to every patron. The library is fortunate to have Dan on our team.”

Doyle said he was honored to serve the residents of Douglas County.

“The library is many things to many people,” he said.
