DELPHOS — After working for the Delphos Public Library for 27 years, Assistant Director Margaret Suever is retiring.

Having only been in that position for 14 years of that time, Suever spent the other 13 trying almost every other library position on for size.

“I’ve done just about everything you can think of here,” she said. “Well, everything except cataloguing. It seems like the years have passed really fast.”


Suever says she didn’t intend to work at the library; it just happened that way.


“I just needed a job at the time. My youngest kid had just started school, so I started to look for something,” she said. “There was an opening here and it just worked out.”

Suever made the decision to retire due to the upcoming changes in the retirement system. She says she will find plenty to keep her busy.

“I thought I might look for another job,” she said. “Also, everyone keeps saying I’m going to clean out all the closets and drawers, which is true. That’s something you never have time to do. I also do a lot of crafts and sewing at home, just something I do for me. I won’t be doing any baking because then I’d be as big as a house. It always sounds good but when you bake, someone has to eat it and it would probably have to be me.”

Suever’s last official day at the library was Thursday. She says there are things she will miss about spending time there.

“I’ll miss the people; that’s my favorite part of the job. You really get to know the patrons working here,” she added. “Who am I going to talk to now besides my husband? One thing I won’t miss is working nights and weekends but then, who would miss that?”

Suever lives in Middle Point with her husband, Donald. They have three grown children and one grandchild.
