Your Library Director Welcomes You
Director's Message

Hi, my name is Veronica Grooms, M.L.S., and I have been the Library Director since 1999. I received my B.A. from Texas A&M University in 1991 with a double major in Russian and English. I received my M.L.S. from Texas Woman's University in 2012. I enjoy reading a variety of genres, but particularly Historical Fiction, Paranormal Young Adult, Biographies and Non-Fiction concerning Russian  or French History, Culture, Art, Language, Literature, and Architecture. In my spare time I enjoy travel--local day trips, across the country, or across the pond;  reading (of course); cooking new recipes; visiting art museums and exhibits; sewing and crochet; and family history. We are here to help you navigate online, use the computers, and recommend great books for you to read. I hope you find the library and community information on this website useful. Please contact me if you have any comments or suggestions for either the website or the library's services or collection. Welcome, and let us know how we can help you.
