COLUMBIA CITY â€” Daily she is surrounded by 130,000 books at the Peabody Public Library. Now Janet Scank is retiring and may just be able to read one for herself.
Friday is Scankâ€™s last day as director of the PPL. She will move back to her home in Bloomington. Her goal is to finish reading a book in less than one week.
For now sheâ€™ll have time to read those John Michell historical novels or the English murder mysteries she longs for.
Scank may even have time to finish all of those biographies sheâ€™s been collecting from the Friends of the PPL bi-annual book sales throughout her tenure.
