50-year library employees consider coworkers family

Frances Bush and Idenia Thornton each took a chance and filled out an application.

Five decades later, they’re still working at the Daniel Boone Regional Library with employees they consider their family.

Bush, 69, started her job on June 1, 1968. Thornton, 74, started in January 1969. Library director Gene Martin hired them when the library was located at Seventh Street and Broadway.

Bush had participated in a program that allowed her to work in the library part-time while she was in high school, and Martin liked her work so much, he hired her when she graduated.
