Meet your new library staff!










Susan, Penny, Darlene, Marguerite and Ali

We  recently said goodbye to Alli Nickel, who has been our shelver for the last year.  We will miss her quiet charm and great work ethic.  She is off to Hamline University, so we expect great things.  Good luck, Alli!

We welcome Ali Geist as our next shelver.  You may know her already from her volunteer work running craft sessions for the summer reading program.  Welcome, Ali!

Marguerite is off on a two-month adventure abroad, so our own Susan Watts will be in charge through the end of October.  Good luck, Susan!

Finally, we welcome Penny Matchinski, who will be filling in as a temporary library technician for September and October.  As a library power-user, we’re sure she’ll hit the ground running.  Welcome, Penny!

P.S.: Darlene Smisek will continue to be the one and only Darlene Smisek.  Way to go, Darlene!
