                                                           Robert "Bob" Doonan

Robert "Bob" Doonan has spent five decades at the Birmingham Public Library since he began working on Jan. 1, 1970, as a part-time page.

 He has been a full-time employee at BPL over 42 years since Feb. 28, 1977, when he was promoted to be an assistant resource center specialist.

Effective this Friday, April 12, Doonan, currently a Network System Administrator I in the Information Technology Department, is retiring after 49 years at BPL.

 Doonan said he has enjoyed the many friendships built with employees who he has helped better serve patrons thanks to his computer expertise.

On Tuesday, April 9, as part of the City of Birmingham's Library Appreciation Day program at the Boutwell Auditorium, Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin publicly thanked Doonan for his many years of service to the citizens of Birmingham.

BPL employees will hold a retirement celebration event for Doonan on Friday, April 12, his last day.
