In May 1942, Fox took the Civil Service exam, and was soon thereafter contacted by the Navy Library Service. She was sent to Washington, D.C., for three months to put together monthly book installments to send to U.S. Navy ships and stations. Then, from November 1942 until November 1945, she served as the first camp librarian at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, where she directed the creation of six libraries. She was then sent to Pearl Harbor to be the 14th Naval District Librarian, where she remained until she left the Navy Library Service in June 1947. After two years in Knoxville, Fox spent thirty years as a Randolph County librarian in Asheboro before retiring. Fox died in Burlington, North Carolina on 14 November, 2012 at the age of 102.
