Cara Ringle ~ Director

Hiii, Cara the Director here. I dig books of all kinds. Literary adult fiction, YA contemporary realism, graphic novels, celebrity memoirs, 20th century American Lit, modernism/postmodernism. My absolute favorites are Looking For Alaska by John Green, This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger. If you ask me for recommendations at the library, I will probably point out the likes of Jodi Picoult, Tom Perrotta, Jonathan Tropper, and Matthew Quick. If you want a teen recommendation, I will probably point out most of our YA section. If you want a grade-school pick, I am obsessed with the Who/What/Where Is series.

Lisa Brown ~ Children’s Librarian

Hi there! Lisa here. Reading is a journey. Sometimes I travel to dystopian societies like that of Tris and Four (Divergent). On other days I visit the world of Laura Ingalls Wilder (Little House on the Prairie). I love the classics! You know… books that were written before cell phones…simpler times. My favorite book is the Bible. Historical fiction is amazing. I also love to read children’s story books. They instantly take me back to my childhood. Our library has an amazing collection of Large Print Christian Fiction, of which the Amish books are my favorite. I read books in three formats: paper, electronic, and audio. Our Overdrive app is amazing! Memoirs are also great, especially when read by the author (via Overdrive). I enjoy our non-fiction quilting and crochet books. Our interlibrary-loan service is great. Check it out. 🙂

Sandi Johnson ~ Full-time Circulation Clerk   

Hi, I’m Sandi and I LOVE to read Science Fiction. The more tech-geeky it is, the more I like it. The Explorer by James Smythe and Across the Universe by Beth Revis are two of my favs.  I also read a lot of Dystopian novels. A couple of series that I like are Red Rising by Pierce Brown and Wool by Hugh Howey. Additionally, I enjoy reading biographies from time to time.

Unfortunately, you won’t see many of my picks at our library because I mostly read from our online E-book database, Overdrive. (Which I highly recommend)

Some other favorite authors are: Margaret Atwood, Andy Weir, Ruby Dixon, and Jaymin Eve

Cindy Jackson ~ Part-time Library Assistant

  Hello there, my name is Cindy and I would best describe my reading preferences as eclectic. I like the classics (like Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, etc), fantasy (Neil Gaiman, Lauren Oliver, Rick Riordan, etc.), general fiction (Mark Haddon, David Levithan, etc.), cookbooks (yes I like to read cookbooks). Basically, anything that strikes my fancy. So, if you are looking to try something new, give my picks a whirl.
