Kim Sherwood became our Children’s Librarian, at Fayette County Public Library, in February 2013. But, she’s been around a little longer. Kim actually began working with the library in 2001 as a part time employee. She became a full time Library Assistant in 2002. Prior to coming to the library, she was supervisory teacher for grades K-2 and classroom teacher for grades 1 & 2 at Danville Christian Academy in Danville, IL.
Kim graduated from Pike Central High School, Petersburg, IN. She obtained an Associate degree in Religion from Kentucky Mountain Bible College, Vancleve, KY in 1979 and a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Olivet Nazarene University in 1983.
Kim’s family life is very important to her. She married in 1981 and has three married children and three granddaughters. Her husband is Senior Pastor at First Church of the Nazarene here in Connersville.
Her hobbies include reading, counted cross stitch and playing piano. A little known fact about Kim is that she played clarinet while attending school and won several medals at various contests.
She loves to spend time with her children and grandchildren, plays miniature golf and enjoys baking. She has also served as a member of the United Way’s Educational Advisory Committee.
I have seen Kim in action. She does a great job of entertaining the kids who come to our programs. You can tell she really enjoys it. She also manages the Children’s Room programs and services, under the direction of Melissa, our Assistant Director. I am very pleased to have Kim as a member of our staff.
