Sarah Myers is a Library Assistant from the Custer County Library. When doing "real" work, Sarah is processing new books, helping patrons, and color-coding the board book section. But when the magic happens, Sarah is plotting of a variety of ways to get into mischief involving decoupage and glitter. When not at the library, Sarah can be found working in the garden or baking some tasty treats that her husband and three littles enjoy.

Karla Bieber started her work in the library as a teenager. Karla’s first position in the library was as the student assistant. She held this position for four years before graduating from high school. After leaving the library to go on to vocational school, she did not believe she would work in the library again. Fate had a twist for her many years later when the Children’s Librarian she had worked with retired. She returned to the library with A feeling of coming home as she started her second position at the library as the Children’s Librarian. After years as the Children’s Librarian, working under Ione Stiles, Karla applied for the position of Library Director when Ione Stiles retired. Karla is currently the Director of the A.H.
