Lori Fitzgerald, the Millinocket Library Director who has worked in the town's library for the last 28 years and is five years from retirement, has been notified that the library will shut down next summer due to the town's budgetary crisis now that the local paper mill is officially out of business. Fitzgerald, who was born and raised in Millinocket, Maine, just finished remodeling her home last month but now must sell it and move elsewhere in search of work.
