Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

The Charles County Li­brary Board of Trustees re­grets to in­form the com­mu­nity that we have re­ceived the res­ig­na­tion let­ter of Mr. Sam Wors­ley. Sam has served on the board for the past seven years. Dur­ing his ten­ure he served as both pres­i­dent and vice pres­i­dent of the li­brary board in which he made a num­ber of en­hance­ments to the li­brary sys­tem. Mr. Wors­ley be­gan his li­brary ser­vice as a vol­un­teer with the Friends of Charles County Public Li­brary and in that role sparked his in­ter­est to serve Charles County in a greater ca­pac­ity.

Sam lost his beloved wife, Nancy, this past Au­gust and feels that his de­clin­ing health has led him to have to re­sign from the board.

In his res­ig­na­tion let­ter to Charles County Com­mis­sioner’s Pres­i­dent Peter Mur­phy and to the li­brary board, Mr. Wors­ley stated that, “I wish each of the board mem­bers much suc­cess in their re­spec­tive en­deav­ors to as­sure the Charles County Public Li­brary Sys­tem achieves its goals and ob­jec­tives in reach­ing its fullest po­ten­tial with the sup­port the county com­mis­sion­ers have demon­strated. It has been my plea­sure to have as­sisted in that ef­fort for the past seven years, three months, and seven days. I shall miss all of my li­brary col­leagues.”

Sam will be deeply missed by the board and the com­mu­nity at large. Please join us at our May 5 meet­ing to thank him for his ser­vice to the com­mu­nity.
