Photo of Maureen, the Office Manager.Maureen joined the Library in 2013 as the Business Manager. When she is not working, or spending time with her husband and two daughters, she loves to go to the movies, explore local restaurants, take long walks or nap!

She is a lifelong book lover who, first and foremost, enjoys good writing in any genre, but leans towards big, meaty novels with strongly developed characters and historical fiction.
