Staff Spotlight – Pat Shelton

In June, we welcomed Pat Shelton to the library team as our newest Circulation Assistant. She’s been busy learning all about our library but has plenty of experience doing library work.

Pat served as a librarian at Broadway High School for 28 years before retiring in 2005, and continued part time until 2010 administering SOL tests. She holds a BS from James Madison University with a Library Science major and a History minor. In her spare time Pat enjoys doing local history research and antiquing. She has also served on the board of the Shenandoah County Historical Society.

Pat is always ready with a smile and a friendly attitude. When you ask her what she likes about working here, she says

I am delighted when I can help a patron find exactly what he or she was hoping to find.  Also, seeing a child’s face light up over a book is gratifying.

We’re glad to have Pat on board and hope you’ve had a chance to come in and meet her. If you haven’t, stop by and say hi – we love getting to know the people we see using the library every day!
