The greatest part of our library is our staff of library professionals. Cheryl Ingerson has been awarded the New Hampshire Children's Librarian of the Year Award for 2022! Since joining the Elkins Library family last year with over 15 years of library expertise, Cheryl has worked tirelessly to learn about the community and the families we serve. This prestigious honor goes to Cheryl who brings her warmth and amazing skill to every program and interaction in the Children's Room. She is an outstanding person who exemplifies professionalism in our field.
Come visit, spend some time and enjoy your library.
