White County Public Library

Cathy Farley Director 


   Staff Says -  

     Over the past 6+ years at the library I have done a lot of things.  Most duties have been very rewarding, and I discovered early on that library workers are expected to know something about everything.  I even received a call asking for cooking advice which I was surprisingly able to give.  My talents/skills and training (??) as a plumber, electrician, carpenter, assembler, creative craft worker, book repairer and computer nerd have been called upon often, BUT.....my greatest 2 loves in my job are helping people get books in the library or on their tablets and making props for the biannual puppet shows.
     All this is possible thru the application of knowledge/information gleaned over the years from books I have been forced, encouraged, or excited to read and thru the internet.  I love to catalogue the thousands of new books we get each year.  The look and feel of them is akin to a teacher entering the classroom at the start of a new year and standing before the innocent, unsuspecting kids that are about to be exposed to things that will have an impact on their future, their families, their cities, states, country and possible the world.  Books can take you around the world.  They can answer questions and prompt new ones.  They can spur the imagination, inspire and challenge you.  They can comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. 
     It is never too early or too late to start reading.  Pick up a new book today.  With over 37,000 in our library and many times that available for tablets we can help you find some to suit your tastes or needs.  Just ask a librarian.....We know something about everything!
