Meet the Librarians

Shara Berghuis

I am privileged to hold the position of Library Director at the Wray Public Library and recently celebrIMG_8614ated my 24th Anniversary as a Library Lady.

I became a Library Lady because I love a box of new books!  I love being part of the Wray Community and coming to a place I enjoy working at every day and serving the patrons.  

If I could, I would work on genealogy all the time and learn the stories of my patrons and of the past.  
Personally I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, movies and pizza.
You can always reach me by email.

Rachel Southards

I am the Assistant/ Children’s Librarian and the “go to" lady for the school teachers providing in- class materials available froIMG_8610m the library.  

I create the Storytime program using story books, crafts and fun, and am rewarded with weekly giggles from 3 to 5 year olds.  

I love coffee, crafts, cooking, reading, hunting, animals and my family.

As far as reading, give me a good mystery, children’s books, or historical fiction.

Please feel free to email me for a reading recommendation.

Robin Newton

I am a new Librarian at the library specializing in Interlibrary Loan and youth/adult services. 

I'm very excited to join the Library crew.  My children have participated in theLibrary Clerk

Library Programs through the years and I think the library is an amazing part

of the community.

Some of my favorite things are spending time with family, camping, reading and crocheting.

I'm happy to be here to meet and assist Library Patrons.  Feel free to email me

for assistance.

 I grew up coming to the library and have followed both my older sisters' footsteps by working for the Wray Public Library. I've had the privilege of helping our awesome patrons since June 2020, and am returning after taking a break from the library to attend college this last year.rylee1

I love hiking, hammocking, baking, and of course, reading.

This summer will be my third Summer Reading Program.  I am excited to see all the patrons, both new and familiar faces!
