The long-serving director of the Lincoln Library in Springfield is stepping down after nearly 40 years on the job.

Nancy Huntley started working there in 1979.

She says she'll never forget her first day of work; it was the day after the public library's first computer arrived.

In 1993 she was appointed the director under former Mayor Ossie Langfelder.

In those four decades, she says she's seen a lot of changes.

Back when she first started everything was done by hand, including the Dewey decimal system. Now she looks back on her time at the library and shares what she will miss the most.

Friday, May 5 was Nancy’s last day and we wish her the very best of luck.
