CLARKESVILLE - Gwendolyn Brown, a longtime member of the library staff at North Georgia Technical College, has retired.<br />
"It's been great, but it's going to get greater," she said of her time with NGTC and her outlook on life in general. "I've had great librarians to work with: Dawn Adams, Caroline Frick, Christina Teasley, and Chris Bryant. Now I'm going to spend time with my family."<br />
