June is Great Outdoors Month! it’s time to encourage people to get outside and recreate responsibly! Whether they are headed to a national park or other lands protected with the help of NPS programs and partners, let visitors know how they can experience, enjoy, and learn from the outdoors. As we continue to also celebrate 100 Years of Health, share the importance of health for all and how every person can benefit from being outdoors.

Congrats to FDLP veteran Deborah Mongeau on her upcoming retirement from the University of Rhode Island. Having served for 46 years since 1975, her deep, dark secret was that she never took a Government documents course in library school. She became an accidental FDLP librarian, and right from the beginning, making Government information accessible has been the centerpiece of her entire career. In retirement, she hopes to find a way to continue to make it so.
