By Carol Armstrong, Librarian
Ron Kanen has been a volunteer in the library at Tall Timbers since October 1998. Ron has logged almost 830 hours of volunteer service during the time I have been the librarian at Tall Timbers (June of 2006).
Ron is a retired librarian, having worked at the Leon County Public Library and the State Library of Florida. At Tall Timbers, he helps with the E. V. Komarek Fire Ecology Database, the signature product of the Tall Timbers Research Library. He keywords fire ecology articles to make them more accessible to database users. He also files, organizes, checks in periodicals for the library, and helps prepare the bindery shipments. Ron is a very valuable part of the Tall Timbers Research Library and we appreciate his dedication and knowledge. I hope he considers his service to our library a fun retirement; thank you, Ron!!!
