  • More than books

    When a lot people think about a library, the first thing that comes to their mind is books and reading. For Sheree Priddy, a library is much more than that.

    Priddy is a circulation librarian at the LaRue County Public Library and she has been working at the library since June, 2013.

    Priddy’s journey to working at the library was not a typical one. She started getting familiar with libraries while she home schooled her one son and four daughters.
