Meet the Staff
Library Director Lora Smith
I've been the director since September 2016. Previously, I worked at both the White Pine Middle and Park Elementary School libraries. I love to swim, hike, travel, and listen to audiobooks. I read in all ages and genres of books and love to connect people with books. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my husband and children.
Assistant Tina Reese
I began working at the library in 1991; I'm currently leading the Discovery Club in addition to other duties. I also work at White Pine Elementary as a reading and recess aide. I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, making crafts, doing projects on the computer, and reading when I can.
Assistant Patricia Clayson Forsgren
I'm married to Kevin Forsgren and we have four daughters, one son-in-law, and three grandchildren. I have been an assistant librarian since 1999. I am passionate about READING, traveling, American history, baseball, and volleyball.
Assistant Jamie Hancock
I recently graduated with a bachelor's degree in Psychology from USU. I think kids are fantastic and interesting; maybe that's why junior fiction is my favorite genre to read. Memoirs and historical fiction are also up there on my favorite genres list.
