Roger Carswell is ready for adventure.

After serving as library director for almost 29 years, the 64-year-old Quenemo native is retiring, especially so as to pursue his passion for travel.

Before hitting the road, however, Carswell sat down with the Register to share some of his memories of the library during his tenure.
