Leslie Stokes

Manager | Heard County Public Library

Meet Leslie:

I'm Leslie Stokes, manager of the Heard County Public Library, and I grew up among books. My mother was the Media Specialist at Roopville Elementary School for many years, and she had me shelving picture books when I was in kindergarten. I have a degree in Library Science and worked for an independent bookstore for 10 years before making the switch to public libraries.

I have been the chairperson of the WGRLS Reader's Advisory Team since its inception in 2013. I love talking about and sharing books with people, especially tween and teens.

Mirna joined the RA Team because one of her favorite parts of being a librarian is sharing her love of reading with others. Recommending books to patrons that they end up loving is really the best. Reading unites people in so many ways, and being a part of that is amazing.

Lindy Moore

Services Director | Douglas County Library

Meet Lindy:

Douglas County Library Services Director I have been working at the Douglas County Public Libraries for more than 20 years, working at all three of our DC Libraries, and have served as Children's Specialist, Branch Manager, and now Library Services Director. I received my BA in Communications from UWG in 2002, my MSLIS from Florida State University in 2005 and my Media Specialist certification in 2008. I currently live in Carrollton with my husband and two teenage boys.

I absolutely LOVE the Libby app! It allows me to always have a book in hand, whether at a lacrosse game, wrestling tournament, band competition, or cross-country meet, I always have my books.

I have been part of the Reader's Advisory committee since its inception. I usually curate the kids picture book and chapter book lists. My goal as a librarian and part of the Reader's Advisory committee is to help children find THE book they love and will remember as they grow. The joy on a child's face when they find a book that truly speaks to them is absolutely amazing.

Laura Buchanan

Bookmobile Librarian | WGRLS

Meet Laura

I'm Laura Buchanan, and I am the bookmobile librarian! The fun thing about being on the bookmobile is getting to bring the library to meet people where they are- then I can not only help them personally, but I can also direct them to their closest library where they can find even more great things!

My favorite genres include true crime, suspense and thrillers, cozy mysteries, and fantasy.
