She is looking forward to being a regular face in the village and seeing to all of your book and Library needs. 

Among other things, she enjoys curling up with a good book (of course), movie nights, baking and long dog walks. 

Please pay her a visit when library services resume. In the meantime, follow us on Instagram #thurstoncommunitylibrary
