A Favorite Book: The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas

A Favorite Joke or Quote: "The merit of all things lies in their difficulty." - Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers

Their Favorite Thing About Libraries: I have a lot of favorite things about libraries. From a user perspective, the ability to check out books, movies and more opens my world to so much more. From a librarian perspective, it is one of the best hidden gems of a job. Books are only part of libraries, patrons are the heart and soul.  They are the reason we do what we do and why I love my job (besides our wonderful and supportive Board of Trustees and librarians!) The more services, programs, events and materials we can supply to our patrons, the more we can build a community that can grow and rely on one another. My goal for our library is to be the community center where everyone can share their talents and stories with each other and to experience new things and create lasting relationships. I certainly hope you'll stop by and see what we have to offer!

A Favorite Quote: "We are all sacred and we all belong. So let's just bake a cake for everyone who wants a cake to be baked." -Andrew Garfield

Their Favorite Thing About Libraries: Seeing what people read can really tell you a lot about a person. It can tell you things that a person themselves wouldn't say, or don't even know about themselves. Libraries and books are like a looking glass into a person's soul. Is that too deep?

A Favorite Book: Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow

A Favorite Quote: "Some days later, I understood what he was trying to say, that getting grown means learning how to work that current: learning when to hold fast, when to drop anchor, when to let it sweep you up." Jesmyn Ward, Sing, Unburied, Sing

Their Favorite Thing About Libraries: I love being around others. I love to assist, to ask questions, to be a part of something. I feel like a town's library is its beating heart, where people gather and, even if you don't know everyone, you feel a sense of camaraderie with them. Libraries are centers of knowledge, yes, but also community, and I love every second I can feel connected with the community they represent.
