Doug Workinger

Doug WorkingerI’ve worked at the library for 20 years, but even before that I worked with books. Every job I’ve ever had I got to work with books in one way or another. My first job was at Waldenbooks when I was 17 years old and I didn’t know it then, but it started me down a path I’ve been fortunate to wander. I read whenever I get the chance, especially comic books and graphic novels, but those times are fewer and fewer now that my partner and I are helping care for our niece, who is just learning to crawl, which gives me very little time to read.


One of the things I do for the library is select for the graphic novel collections. I always love to hear suggestions and talk about anything comics, so feel free to email me if you want to see something in our library that we don’t have.

I am originally from Tipton County and had never seen a bookmobile until I started working at KHCPL over 13 years ago.  I am married, have an 18-year-old son and a 22-year-old daughter who is married and lives in New Jersey to a wonderful man who is in the U.S. Air Force. I have two miniature schnauzers, four grandcats, one granddragon, and one grandhamster.

Rhonda B-A

I enjoy the feel of a book in my hand, smelling the print as I read, looking online for new items, placing holds and eagerly waiting for my email saying they are here! So working at the library is a wonderful experience. My job takes me out to schools, assistant living communities, daycares and neighborhoods giving me a chance to meet new people and build friendships with them. My growing family is my main focus. I enjoy reading (of course), listening to audio books on my drive to work, sewing for my family, gardening with my sister and spending time with wonderful friends....life is good.



Robin R.

Robin R.I love to tell stories, much to the displeasure of my four grandchildren and daughter who are the inspiration of most of my stories. Teaching children at church each Sunday is a great outlet for storytelling and crafts which I also love. But I also enjoy hearing good stories, so my job as senior service coordinator is a perfect fit. The homebound patrons that I work with fill me with their life stories that amuse and inspire me. I am often told I should write a book with all of my stories and theirs. This may just be a kind way of asking me to put them on paper instead my continual talking. However, someday I may just do that. I would love to have time to sit in my flower garden, write a book and fill it with some of my photographs which are in my computer longing to be seen.
