    The longest working Salt Lake City librarian is calling it quits after 61 years.

    "This library has been my life for all these years," said Lenore Lewis. "I spend more time here than at home."

    Lewis, 79, started working at the Sugar House branch at 17 years old. And the rest is history.

    "I love the people I work with," she said.

    But after decades of changes and memories, Lewis is leaving the Salt Lake City public library.

    "I'm really afraid," she said. "I don't know what's going to happen."
