Important Staff Information

Staffing changes at the library.

We'd like to announce some staffing changes at the library.  Mrs. Patty Brown, or "Miss Patty", our Children's Librarian will be taking a position with the Marion County Extension Office.  While we certainly hate to see Patty go, we're excited for her as she embarks on a new adventure.  The library and the Extension Office have always had a close relationship, with us doing programming there and vice versa, so we're certain to be seeing plenty of one another as time goes on!  Patty's last day at the library will be Friday, January 19, 2018.

Our very own Morgan Trigg will be moving into the position of Children's Librarian.  She'll be maintaining the inventory of children's literature, ordering new titles and programming such as the S.T.E.A.M. (Science - Technology - Engineering - Arts - Mathematics) each Monday from 5:00 until 5:45 for ages 4 - 10 and our ever popular Toddler Tales each Wednesday morning at 10 am for toddlers up to school age.
