Kathy Paige Early Childhood Education Assistant

A Madrid native, Kathy has worked at the library since 1995, specializing in early childhood education. “My greatest pleasure is seeing children grow and develop through their love of reading and being read to.” Kathy has hosted Story Time since 1998, and has worked with our Summer Reading Programs since they began.

Julie Gomez Technological Services Assistant

Julie began work at the library in 2006. She has served the library in many capacities over the years. Julie has taught computer classes and helped many patrons explore things they did not know using computers or other technology. “There is always something new to learn. Every question is valid.” Julie has begun to digitize some of the library’s historical documents.
