Nancy Huske, Circulation Librarian, has been working for the Library since 2011.  She likes working for the NancyLibrary because of her love of books and people.  It gives her the opportunity to help others find and enjoy books.

Nancy has lived in Silver Lake since 1978.  She has three children – one who lives in Topeka and the other two in the KC area.  Nancy favorite hobbies are working in the yard, reading and traveling.

She can’t really define a favorite book or movies.  She enjoys reading so many different authors who write biography, autobiography, fiction, suspense and mystery novels.

Nancy loves traveling.  “My favorite locations to visit are Alaska, Destin, Florida and anywhere in Colorado.  I would describe myself as energetic, fun-loving and giving.”
