Myshrall has worked in the Bowdoin College Library for nearly 39 years. Currently working in Circulation, she has also served as library assistant in Technical Services, where she processed new books; library clerk in Acquisitions where she supported book-ordering processes; and staffed the circulation desk and reshelved materials as Music Library assistant.

The Experience Works Prime Time Awards salute America's senior workforce by identifying winners in three categories: Outstanding Older Workers, Outstanding Employers of Older Workers and America's Oldest Worker.

Nominating letters from Myshrall's co-workers, faculty and alumni convinced the awards committee of her many talents. Myshrall will be traveling to Washington, D.C., in October to receive her award.
