Bio

Mrs. Evans enjoys many hobbies: reading (of course!), biking, hiking, camping, traveling, gardening, photography and genealogy are just a few of her interests. She also collects motivational quotes.  One of her favorite things to do as a librarian is to find that "perfect book" for students and to help develop a love of life-long learning.  

  

"You cannot open a book without learning something."  ~ Confucius

 

“I have always thought that librarians are a little bit like doctors, travel agents and professors all rolled into one. We all know that a great story can lift spirits, take you anywhere in the world you want to go and in any time period to boot, and the lessons you learn from a good book can buoy your own convictions and even change your life. ”  ~ Dorothea Benton Frank

 

“What can I say? Librarians rule.”  ~ Regis Philbin

 

"The only thing that you absolutely have to know is the location of the library." ~ Albert Einstein

 

 

"Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life." ~ Sidney Sheldon
