The duty of a librarian is to bring order to chaos, clarity to confusion, understanding to bewilderment, and books to anybody who wants to read them. It is a pleasure to perform that duty, and to serve the students and faculty of Decatur High School.
I enjoy time with my family, cycling, history of all kinds, archaeology, etymology, and learning French. I have two adult children. And now, I am blessed with two beautiful grandchildren, to which the exact number is subject to change without notice.
