Librarian in the Spotlight

Librarian in the Spotlight

Cathy Newland, Library Director, came to work for the Silver Lake Public Library in December 2010. She lives with husband JerryCathy and doggie pal Lucy. They all love small-town living and the sense of community they share with folks in Silver Lake.

“She is too fond of books, and it has addled her brain.” (Louisa May Alcott) This has been said of Cathy too. She does love to read and when asked about her favorite book, she usually says, “The one I am reading right now.”

Reading and books is not the only reason Cathy likes working in the Library. The Library is so much more and she is so pleased to be a part of the fine services offered.

Fall is her favorite time of the year. “And Thanksgiving – I am so thankful for the wonderful group of people I work with. I hope you have enjoyed seeing them in the Spotlight.”
