Some people think I’m crazy when I say I LOVE MY CAREER! I wake up eager and ready for the jolts and joys that awaits me for that day. Serving people especially students and their parents is my mission in life and I truly embrace that mission. The DML really cares about their staff and we have a culture of being positive unlike none other (just like the culture of PACE - Parents Advancing Choice in Education) I’ve experienced! I love my DML that is all I’m trying to say! My first partner was Dave Hicks when I started in 2017 and he was the best Coordinator to work with. I was proud (and still proud) when Dave became Branch Manager and left me (no just kidding) alone to grow ROCK YOUR HOMEWORK! Yes I love my DML!
My kids and I love this library...we love the librarians....we have been going to this library since my oldest was 2,she is now 9....it has a great selection of books
