Message From the Director
Hello Paris Texas!
It is such an honor to serve as your library director.
I come straight to you from Thailand where I was an English teacher for the past three years. The Thai culture and environmental geography was an amazing experience. Thai people are truly a beautiful spirit and loving culture.
I bring almost 22 years of library experience from St. Charles City-County Library District just outside of St. Louis, Missouri. Being in Paris, is quite a charming town experience.
You live in a wonderful community and the library wants to become a part of your daily life.
My main goal is to provide equal access of library services for all of Paris.
A few things we have done for you-
- Full access to our PC stations. Anyone can use a PC! Only an ID is needed.
- We started a Kids Read Free- no fines on juvenile materials.
- Your new library card now allows you to checkout 40 items right when you get the card.
- We started a new 1,000 books before kindergarten.
- We are looking into meeting room expansion. Your library needs to bring together many people at one time.
- We are creating a teen zone/ study area.
- We are creating partnerships for new programming ideas.
- We are bringing new volunteers together.
- Our board games and digital table allows for family time on the go.
- We are moving digital. We have ebooks and databases for education and recreational enjoyment.
- We are creating more social media content. Find us on FB and YouTube.
We are your public library! Send me a note if you think we can do something amazing together.
I look forward to trying ideas and creating a place where everyone can enjoy their library.
