Beloved longtime Rancho Santa Fe Library employee retires


By Karen Billing

Ginny Dewey has worked at the Rancho Santa Fe Library for so long that no one is quite sure how many years it’s been. The best guess is 35 years for the faithful library employee, who celebrated a retirement party on Sept. 4.

Friend Ginger Bord recalled spending many years in the library basement with Dewey, pre-remodel. Before the basement was the Book Cellar, Bord worked for the RSF Senior Center alongside Dewey for years before the center got its own location.

“Ginny is such an institution here in the library,” Bord said. “She has really given so many years and that’s Rancho Santa Fe. She has a love for this community.”

In her retirement, Dewey will have more time for her needlepoint projects and her dogs.
