Peggy Bateson—Cary Memorial Library circulation director
Peggy Bateson is a Cary Memorial Library institution. Employed at the library for 45 years, she has served in almost every imaginable capacity at the library. A resident of Lexington since age 5, like many long time residents, Peggy loves the many library improvements but cherish the older parts of the library as well. Peggy has given so much of her life to Cary Library that she seems almost like a part of the library. “I consider myself to be very lucky, this has been my only job all my life and I love it! It has never been work to me. How many people can say that?” said Peggy. We photographed Peggy in the magazine room, which is one of her favorite parts of the library.
