Adams retired on June 30 after serving the community for nearly 40 years.
She worked at Toccoa Falls College for 12 years before joining North Georgia Technical College in 1986.
Adams started with the library at the Clarkesville campus, then moved to the Currahee Campus in Stephens County when it opened.
Students, faculty, staff, retirees, and friends stopped by the Currahee Campus Conference Center recently for a drop-in farewell reception.
North Georgia Technical College Dean for Academic Affairs Dan Pressley called Dawn an asset to North Georgia Technical College not only in her knowledge and expertise as a librarian, but as a loyal employee.
Pressley said that Adams saw many changes through the years and kept the college moving forward in the services available to its students and added the school will miss her greatly.
Adams, who lives in Toccoa with her husband, said she has loved being a librarian and has never wanted to do anything else.
She said the best part of the job has been working with the students.
Adams did say that technology has changed the profession a lot from when she was in school.
