After 11-and-a-half years and 600-plus programs at Rockland Public Library, Steve Donoso marked his last day as Adult Library Program Coordinator March 7. The Friends of the Rockland Public Library hosted a going-away gathering for him in the Friends Community Room of the library, which was attended by library patrons of all ages, friends and family. Donoso and his family are moving to Ecuador, which should prove quite the change from Midcoast Maine.
