Hi! My name is Katie and I am the current director of the Guttenberg Public Library. I started my tenure at the library in January 2019. Libraries have been in my life since I was a young girl walking into the Cedar Rapids Public Library in the early 1990s. After graduating from Cedar Rapids Prairie High School, I went on to Clarke College in Dubuque where I spent four years working in the library on campus. From there my love of libraries took off and I made the cross country move to pursue my Master's in Library Science at the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland (Fear the Turtle)! I have worked at both the Cedar Rapids Public Library and the Dubuque County Library-NICC Branch as well as spending ten and a half years at Bed Bath and Beyond as department and customer service manager. I love reading, researching and helping patrons find the right sources for their needs! My favorite books range from A Time to Kill by John Grisham to The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood to The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. But if there is one book series that I would say I know by heart it would be Harry Potter! Stop in to talk to me about books, resources or just to say hi!
