Longtime librarian Fran Gilles will retire in January 2018 after more than 20 years working at the Benedictine University Library.
Fran has worked as a reference librarian at the BenU Library for the past 22 years. In addition to helping students at the Research Center, Fran oversaw the Illinois Documents Collection and chaired the Library Social Commmittee. Before working at BenU, Fran worked for many years in public libraries.
In December, the Library staff hosted a retirement party to celebrate her years of library service.
Best wishes to Fran for a happy retirement filled with family, travel, and good books!
