I am the library's Program Supervisor and work with staff to help organize, promote, and create programs for the library.
My creative passion is art and crafts. I have had several dough art and clay books published (type my name in the card catalog). For the last ten years I have turned my focus toward gourd art and hope you'll see me published on that topic someday too.
