New Faces at Pierz Public Library
In the last several months, two new faces have smiled and welcomed patrons at the Pierz Public Library. A new branch assistant, Joan Stuckmayer (on left in photo) has joined the staff in Pierz. She may be familiar to many, for she also holds the same position in Little Falls. Eleven years ago, she relocated to Pierz from Elk River, where she had been an avid library user. She was thrilled to start working at GRRL. In addition to working at GRRL, Joan and her husband, Brian, raise sheep. Some of her hobbies are reading, gardening and sitting on her deck, enjoying her countryside view.
A new library aide, Valerie Matlock has been a perfect fit to the Pierz Public Library. Once Valerie learned how to read, she couldn't put books down. She is very passionate about reading. While growing up and raising her own family, she frequented the library and book mobile. When she was been given the opportunity to work for GRRL, she took it and absolutely loves it. When Valerie is not working or reading, she helps her husband on their farm north of Pierz.
Welcome to the Pierz Public Library, Valerie and Joan.
