Please join us in extending our best wishes to Peggy Mershon on the announcement of her retirement as Director from the library.
For over sixteen years she’s been instrumental in bringing a wide variety of programs, implementing the Friends of the Library organization, and overseeing the expansion of the library. Outside of the library, she’s worked with many local civic organizations such as Rotary, and served in various capacities of the Kentucky Public Library Association.
Peggy’s steady leadership as our Director has allowed the library to grow and develop new ventures, bringing exciting opportunities to the residents of Laurel County. We’re very grateful for her years of hard work and dedication to the library. We’ll miss Peggy but we’re eager to see what she does as she moves onto a new chapter of her life.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to introduce Leah Rudder as the new Interim Director. Leah has been employed by the library for fourteen years and served as Preschool Programmer, Adult Programmer, Children’s Librarian, and most recently Programs and Promotions Manager.
