Librarian Spawned

Photo by Julie Clements

That's my kid! There's a good story in the El Dorado Times; here's a bit:

El Dorado, Kan. —

Rachel Ayers has always had a love of books and libraries. That passion led her to a new job as the librarian at the Towanda Public Library.

Ayers, of El Dorado, took over as the new librarian Dec. 5.

“I love books and libraries so it seemed like a good fit for me,” she said.

In the past she has worked at Bradford Memorial Library and libraries at Pittsburg State University, Kansas State University and Butler Community College.

Her mother had told her about this opening and she decided to apply.
...She wants to instill that love of books and reading to the youth.

“I’ve been a book lover from knee high,” Ayers said. “My mom read to us every night growing up.”

In addition, her mother has been a librarian for 16 years.

Ayers, who graduated from PSU with a creative writing English degree, said she always thought of libraries as a place to go for books, resources and things to do.
