Eureka! ---We Have Found Her!

Eureka! ---We Have Found Her!


Our search for the next director brought us several fine candidates, well-qualified and with interesting backgrounds, but that special person was not among them. At the eleventh hour, just as we had decided to begin again, there was one last resume, one last applicant, the perfect one.  Tracy Themer, the Children and Youth Services Librarian at the Kingfisher Memorial Library, decided to cross the river and make the Hennessey Public Library her new home.  Stacy will be working with Mary until October and then, as the Book Witch takes her final Haunted Library flight, the torch will be passed and a bright new era will begin.  Stacy will be moving into her new office on June 4th, the first day of Summer Reading, and will be exploring the nooks and crannies of this old building through the summer and finding the ropes she must learn.  Come meet her!
