Families First
Libraries are a special place for community members to safely expand their knowledge and
engage with their community. They should be positive, unifying spaces that promote civic
engagement, responsible citizenry and life-long learning. Promoting family and senior-
friendly services and programs are a top priority.

As a valued community asset, the Kuna library needs more meeting spaces, information
technology, educational programs and services to meet the needs of a growing community.
Obtaining funds to fulfill these needs requires strong advocacy and persistence.

It is vital that policy makers be critical, collaborative, and creative problem-solvers. I feel
my diverse leadership experiences as a nurse in healthcare, academia and volunteer
organizations would benefit the future growth of our library and community. It is also
important that these processes, and the policies that govern the library, be easily available.
I look forward to working with the library directors and community members to increase
the value of a community asset that encompasses and promotes our family values
