Shannon Reid-Wheat – Library Director

AKA: Zombie Slayer/Master Detective/Macgyver

As Library Director, Shannon wears several different hats. You could find Shannon working on daily library operations, talking Readers’ advisory with patrons, ordering and processing new books, or spraying weeds in the parking lot on any given day. Shannon loves working at the library! When not at the library, Shannon lives in the huge metropolis of Admire where she grew up, but was transported back to in a time machine. She spends her off time with her family, her dogs, and reading as much as time allows.

 Michelle Waymire Youth Services/Assistant Librarian

 AKA: Lion Tamer/Nerdmigo

Michelle loves working at the library where the “What to Read” list grows longer, and the patrons spoil the staff with free food. You can find her doing messy crafts during Story time, updating the social media pages, or spazzing over the new kids books. During her time off, Michelle is usually cutting firewood, doing landscaping, playing with her daughter, or trying to squeeze in some reading. Her favorite movie series is the Avengers or anything Marvel. Team Loki!

Aimee Roberts– Interlibrary Loan Clerk

AKA: The Finder of Obscure Books

I love working at the library because I get to be around books every day, and I am a total book nerd!!! I enjoy helping our patrons ILL books or DVDs no matter how obscure, though it does make it difficult sometimes. As part of my work-study in high school, I would go and be a library aide for the high school librarian two afternoons a week. I immediately applied at the Council Grove Public Library when a job became available and have loved my job ever since! My favorite book would have to be “Little  House on the Prairie” because I loved reading about all the adventures that Laura did while living on the prairie! I also enjoy playing, or watching others play, the 90’s computer game Oregon Trail and listening as the others panic because they’ve lost yet another member of their wagon train.

Jess Prudence-Clerk

AKA: Shelving Extraordinaire

 Hi! I’m Jess! I have loved coming into the library ever since I was a little kid going to story time. I love working at the library because I get to meet so many people and help them find what they need. I’m often a slave to shelving…I mean…I’m often subjected to shelving all the wonderful books after school. One of the awesome perks of my job is putting together the puzzles to make sure all the pieces are still in the box. Since playing Pokemon Go, I have found a Pokemon in Shannon’s water bottle; she said she felt violated. I love reading a variety of genres, but my favorite books will always be Harry Potter! 10 points to Ravenclaw!!!

Kay Roberts-Clerk

Kay has always enjoyed reading — fitting it in to her day as often as possible. She likes the feel of a real book in her hands, so reading novels on her iPad isn’t the method she uses! She attributes her love of reading to her mother and father, who made sure the family made it to the library almost every Saturday when she and her siblings were growing up.

Yes, we are crazy. No, you shouldn’t worry. Yes, we love our library!
