You may notice a few new faces at the Library! One of those new faces is Miss Alyssa, our new Head of Youth Services! Read a little about her below, and make sure to stop in the Children's Room to say hi!

Miss Alyssa has worked in libraries for 13 years and in three different states. Her favorite book of all time is Peter Pan, and her favorite picture book character is Olivia the pig. Miss Alyssa loves to read, hike, color, play with her cat, and make lots of friendship bracelets. She is very excited to meet all of the young patrons who visit the library, and she can't wait for the Summer Reading Program to start!
