Miss Diane started working at the library in August of 2017. She helps develop and run a successful after school program for middle school-aged children (during non-pandemic times). She also moderates a Mother/Daughter Book Club that meets once a month to discuss middle school-appropriate books.
Miss Diane works at the front desk when she is not with the children, but her favorite part of the library is getting to know the kids and their parents during the course of a school year and watching the kids grow and learn from year to year.
Her favorite books for children include Trumpet of the Swan and The War that Saved My Life. Email Miss Diane.
