Toni Bressler has been named the new director of the Morton County Library. Toni is a hometown girl who has returned to Elkhart after living in Lawrence,KS. Toni worked as our Children’s Librarian for 14 years prior to moving to Lawrence. She worked at KU Libraries the last 10 years. She has a lot of knowledge & enthusiasm that is contagious. We are happy to welcome Toni to her new position.
We will greatly miss Virginia Johnson who has been an outstanding leader for our library for 35 years and we wish her well in her retirement.
