Shelf Life

The Stillwater County Library congratulates new assistant librarian Raya Logan-Jackson on her promotion. Logan-Jackson is already well-known for her work over the past year as the library clerk and especially for leading library programs for children and adults in and out of the library. Logan-Jackson will assume her new position in March.

The library is currently staffed by Director Jennifer Reed, with competent help from four temporary county employees. On Jan. 29, Khali Severs will join the staff as a full-time clerk. Being an avid book lover with previous library experience, Severs will be a valuable addition to the team.

On Feb.19, the Stillwater County Library Trustees will host a reception to welcome Reed, Logan-Jackson and Severs to their new positions. Reed assumed her duties in early December of 2019 and has already implemented exciting changes in the library. If you haven’t already stopped by and met Jennifer, please do so.


While ongoing children’s programs at the library and local pre-schools continue, new February programming will include “Tales from the Heart,” which involves collecting anecdotes and brief oral histories from Stillwater County residents describing how living here has “captured your heart.” More details will be coming soon.

New acquisitions cover a broad spectrum of interests and include the following:

•Craig Johnson’s “Cold Dish”

•“Voices of Yellowstone’s Capstone: A Narrative of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness”

•“How to Win Friends and Influence People in the Digital Age” by Dale Carnegie & Associates

•“All the Greys on Greene Street” by Laura Tucker

•Octavia Butler’s “The Parable of the Sower”

•”The Deserter” by Nelson DeMille

•And a series of board books focusing on science and math for babies and toddlers.
