Peggy Cox, Reference Librarian

Peggy Cox

Congratulations to Peggy Cox who is retiring from Lakeland Library on September 30th, 2020! During her time as a Reference Librarian, Peggy worked closely with the Early Childhood Education program as well as the Math and ITCS departments. She has played an integral role in developing our children's literature collection, securing textbook reserves for math students, and cataloging a variety of library materials. Lakeland students, including the President of the Library's student group, were thrilled to work with Peggy on research projects because she was incredibly thorough and very dedicated to their success. Prior to joining the library staff, Peggy was an instructor for Lakeland's ITCS program. Together, she has served over 25 years at Lakeland. She has been a joy to have as a colleague, and we wish her the best as she spends some well deserved time in Florida with her family!
