Library Staff

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 Medical. She 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.

Kathie O’Keefe joined the library staff in April of 2018.  As the wife of a 21 year Army veteran, Kathie has lived and traveled all over the world.  Her experiences have given her a love of knowledge and a great respect for all cultures.  Her goal is to share those things with others, and help our young people to be ready to face the future.  She loves to read all types of books, but her favorites are science fiction and fantasy.  She feels that in the world, just like in books, anything is possible.

Emily Howser has been the first face you see at the library since July of 2018. She has a love and respect of people. Her goal while working at the library is to help whoever she comes into contact with and show them everything the library offers. She also has a great love for reading and can talk your ear off about it if you let her. She loves all kinds of books, but her favorite genres to read are fantasy, historical romance, psychological thrillers, and young adult fiction.
