Dear Ms. Baker,

I write this letter to announce my formal retirement from Hatch Library as reference librarian, effective as of February 15.

I would like to thank you for all the great opportunities you have given me as an employee at Hatch Library. I have enjoyed working with and learning from my colleagues for the past twenty years, and am ready to move on to the next phase in my life.
