Pamela Belden, director of the Waterford Public Library, is closing a chapter in her professional life.

The Village Board discussed and reviewed Belden’s planned retirement, set for Feb. 16, at a recent meeting. Her letter was included in the board packet.

“Please know this has been a difficult decision for me, but I’ve given it a great deal of thought and realize it’s time to transition into the next phase of my life,” Belden wrote.

Belden has served as director of the Waterford Public Library for 21 years — a span of time she said has been marked by a “dynamic staff of skilled and wonderful employees.”
