Patti Lehman has been the director of the library since August 2004.
She holds a M.S. in Education from Oklahoma State University. She and her husband are both OSU alumni, but now must claim a house divided since her son chose OU. Mrs. Lehman enjoys the many hats she wears as a rural library director. She brings her Education background, plus experience in problem solving, combined with a drive to organize. She has read most of the classics during her studies, but now enjoys reading paranormal romances and science fiction. She is a big fan of series and never reads them out of order.

Julie Horton is the Assistant Librarian.
She has been teaching, tutoring, writing and editing professionally since 1992. She is especially interested in matching readers with their perfect book and in assisting writers in the publication process. She has a B.A. in English/Religious Studies from York College. Julie lives off the grid in rural Pushmataha County with her family & their menagerie of livestock, pets, marauding wildlife, invasive species, and year-round gardens. In her spare time, she occasionally finds her own perfect read.

Victoria Kelley has been the library clerk since July 2015.
She and her husband have been residents of the Antlers area since August 2012, previously living in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Currently, she is enrolled at Western Governor’s University pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Her goal is to interact with the patrons of the library so that she may encourage the appreciation of literature, as well as the other services that the library provides. Mrs. Kelley enjoys classical literature such as Shakespeare and Homer, plus science fiction and romance novels. One of her favorite books is Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes.
