Carla Glaze started her adventure of being an Assistant Librarian on October 6th, 2020. She moved from Texas to Antlers in 2019, where she lives on a small ranch with her husband, three children, seven dogs, four cats, five goats, two cows, and more poultry than can be counted. Her love of books started as a young child and continues to grow. She loves reading to her children and can usually be caught with her head in a book. She enjoys all genres but does admit that science fiction is her favorite. She believes her Hogwarts letter was delivered to the wrong address by mistake.
Judy Derby was born a bookworm. She read over 60 books in the 2nd grade, earning her a certificate. If you saw pictures of her before age 13, it was usually with her nose in a book. She loves the feel of a book, the way it smells, knowing there’s a new adventure to take. Don’t get her started on favorite authors or book series, and discovering sci-fi was a significant highlight in her life. Her family moved to this area when she was 12, and she attended Rattan, Moyers, and Antlers schools before graduating in 1976. After high school, she married and moved to New Mexico for a few years before returning to the area. Her three children grew up here, too. She graduated from Southeastern in 2005 and has worked for the DHS and Little Dixie CAA; many of the area’s families are familiar. She loves to laugh, share funny stories, and sing. But put her on a warm beach with a book, and she’s home!
