I am Dorothy Steelman and I am the director of the Pleasanton Public Library in Texas, ( not California).  You would be surprised how many incorrect calls we get on a monthly basis.

The city of Pleasanton has a population of about 12,000 but since we are the largest library within Atascosa County and the county gives us funds to also serve the residents outside the city limits, the State has assigned us with 21,999 has our population served.

I have been the director for over 2 1/2 years and previously I was the library director of a small rural non-profit library for almost 12 years.  Crossing over from the world of non-profits to a city entity has been an experience.  I truly enjoy being a librarian so the transition has been more a labor of love than chore.  

When I am not working in the library you can find me reading, hiking or taking care of my 4 year old grandson.

At the Allen Public Library in Allen, TX we get phone calls for the Allen County Public Library in Indiana!

Hello, my name is Claudia Wayland and I'm the Youth Services Manager at the Allen Public Library in Allen, TX. I've worked here a little over two years. 

Allen is located about 25 miles north of Dallas and has slightly less than 100,000 residents. In addition to serving the people who live in Allen, the Allen Public Library also serves the surrounding cities and towns including Fairview, Parker, and Lucas. 

We will be expanding our current building in 2-3 years, and will be looking for ideas for how to use our new space for our library visitors. 

Looking forward to meeting everyone on Monday!
