A reception was held on Sunday, August 25, 2013 at Ridgway Memorial Library in honor of Randy Matlow, who retired after 24 years as Director at Bullitt County Public Library. He served from April 1989 to September 2013.
During his tenure, three new libraries were built and the Ridgway Memorial Library was expanded. This is also the period when BCPL moved online! We fully transitioned from card catalogs to an online catalog in 1993, added internet access in July 1995, and launched our first website in 1998. In addition, Randy lead the Library through several flood threats, spearheaded the expansion of teen programming to include multiple anime-themed events, and introduced several new resources to the system including e-books and Blu-rays in 2010.
