Trina,
a Pagosa native, is in charge of our teen programs.  She’s married to J.D., another native Pagosan,
and they have two dogs.  Trina will start
an online librarian course in January.

Carmelita
grew up in Dolores where her mother and father still live.  She describes herself as an artistic type who
loves crafts.  Among her duties at the
library is overseeing our DVD collection.

The
next time you are in the library, please introduce yourself to Trina and
Carmelita.  They would love to meet you.
