She is currently a junior at Silver Lake high school.  She is a member of the National Honor Society and will participate in the school play spring of 2017.

Julie Falk, Circulation Librarian, came to work for the Silver Lake Public Library in February, 2016.  She is juliemarried to Darren and has a beautiful 12 year old daughter.  The Falks have lived in Silver Lake for eight years and really enjoy the community.  Julie is actively involved in Silver Lake United Methodist Church where she works with elementary age children in various ministries.

Julie says, “I love the Silver Lake Library because of the lively atmosphere.  I often tell people our library is not a typical ‘quiet’ library because everyone has so much fun!”  It is so rewarding to see children enjoy playing at the library, as well as their enthusiasm over books.  Adults and youth are also observed finding the library a relaxing yet stimulating environment.

If you were to ask Julie what her favorite book or author is, she would tell you she prefers inspirational novels but seems to explore various genre and authors over time.  “There just are not enough hours in the day to read all of the books that call to me!”
