Kristi leads the staff as Director with great enthusiasm and loves connecting with all patrons who visit the library. She especially enjoys working with children, having spent many years as our Children's Librarian. She will take on any reading challenge, so stop her and say hello!
Laurel is our Teen Librarian and Media Specialist as well as assisting with ordering our other large collections. Laurel has a great knowledge of our collection, so go ahead and ask, she'll find it for you. She's the front desk lead, and enthusiastically awaits the opportunity to help you discover new books & authors, no matter what your age! Laurel serves as our volunteer coordinator & hosts two book clubs. She often says that book covers are like a face to her, so don't be surprised when she knows your name on sight. Working at our library IS her dream job!
Dylann loves four things in life: reading, history, her plants, and her dogs. If there was a book about the history of plants, she would read it to her dogs. She loves solving computer problems because technology is only great when it works. One of her favorite things about working in the library is seeing all the new items come in and cataloging them. She loves putting events and puzzles on the big screen in the TV lobby for everybody to enjoy.
If you need help with tech, Marisa might have the answers you need. She is our Spanish speaker on staff and orders Spanish materials. She manages the Milliken Dropbox and our website. She can be found at the front desk or the Milliken Computer Center most of the time. She loves to help patrons so do not hesitate to ask her for help!
My name is Delka Babiuch, I have worked at the library for around four years and I have loved being a member of our supportive, engaging staff. Currently, I do two Storytimes, Parachute and Little Ducklings and select romance books for our collection. Outside the library I run a program called Comic Creator Club for middle schoolers with both local schools and homeschool groups to create great, original comic books. Currently, I am also partnering with HPLD and CEEN Head Start at Milliken Elementary School to do a monthly Storytime for their preschoolers. Working at the library provides me with daily opportunities to create and experience positive social interactions, gratitude and a strong sense of shared community with our great staff and patrons.
Gail is one of our substitute librarians. She brightens up the circ desk with her friendly smile, wonderful attitude, and fun sense of humor.
Monica Johnson grew up anxiously waiting for the bookmobile to come lumbering into her rural Utah hometown every two weeks. Working at the library is a dream come true. She loves her husband, three kids, books, mountains, road trips, Disneyland, fruit pies, folding laundry, and her cat (sometimes, but not necessarily in that order). She dislikes beets, fried potatoes, mean people, emptying the dishwasher, The Hunger Games, and new technology (exactly in that order). When, and if, she ever grows up, she wants to keep working at the library, while diligently keeping her secret identity as a NY Times Best Selling Author completely classified.
Lisa has raised her two sons in the Johnstown/Milliken community. While she has primarily been a stay-at-home mom, she has had much involvement in supporting our community and in early childhood related endeavors. Her enjoyment of children and her creativity makes her an asset on our story time team.
Deborah is one of our substitute librarians. She has worked as a librarian before and has been volunteering at the library.
Anna’s two favorite things at the library are working at the circulation desk, and greeting patrons when they walk through the door. She is always ready to help and catch up on what’s new, and enjoys hosting two book clubs. When she is not at the library, she loves to take walks, listen to audiobooks, and linger over a good cup of coffee at B’s with friends.
Rachael coordinates the preschool messy art program and hosts a monthly painting class here at the library. She is passionate about bringing art and culture into our everyday lives. You can also often find her at the circulation desk. Rachael is an avid Sci-fi reader, and loves to help patrons of all ages find a good book to get lost in.
