It’s been nearly a month since Stephanie Murphy has joined us as Director of the New Carlisle-Olive Township Public Library, and she’s settling in quite nicely. Coming from La Porte, Stephanie worked at the La Porte County Public Library for eight years.
Although she had graduated from Hillsdale College with a Bachelor in English, after six months of working at the library, she decided to pursue a Master’s Degree Program in Library Science at IUPUI.
While at the La Porte County Public Library she worked her way up to Children’s Librarian, Branch Supervisor, and then finally, Public Services Manager.
While Stephanie is new to the New Carlisle-Olive Township Public Library as a Director, we are not new to her. Her husband, Tim, taught for ten years at La Lumiere. During that time, the New Carlisle-Olive Township Public Library was their home library.
Stephanie and her husband have six children ranging in age from eight to twenty-two. In August, they added a son-in-law. Join us on Sunday, January 14 from 2:00-4:00 pm for an open house to welcome Stephanie to our library.
