We want to welcome our new Library Director, Becky Kellum!
Stop in to meet her. She is a great addition to the community and our library.

Becky Kellum, recently hired as the new Library Director of the Fayette County Public Libraries started her duties as Director March 4.  She has over 30 years of library experience in public and academic libraries. Becky was born in Mt. Vernon, Ohio and raised on a small farm near Martinsburg, Ohio.  For the last 35 years Becky has lived in and near Cambridge, Ohio located in the Southeastern part of Ohio.

Becky attended Kent State University in Kent, Ohio and received a BA degree in Classical Humanities and then her Master’s in Library Science.  Her first job was as an Elementary School Librarian in the East Knox School District in Bladensburg, Ohio providing programing and instructions for grades 1-6. After 7 months at the school Becky accepted an Assistant Director/Children’s Librarian position at the Guernsey County District Public Library in Cambridge, Ohio. She worked there 6 years providing story time and toddler time programs at the main library and branches along with organizing the Summer Reading program. Becky then accepted a position with the SEO Library Center in Caldwell, Ohio. She managed the reference, interlibrary loan and cataloging departments along with all of the collection development.  The SEO center started out as a bookmobile center then later discontinued that service and focused on becoming a consortium for small and rural libraries providing a shared catalog database.

After 24 years of working at SEO Becky retired for a couple of years and did some traveling, reading and relaxing.  After three years of retirement, Becky went to work at Muskingum University in New Concord, Ohio as Circulation Supervisor at the University Library.  She managed student workers and ordered and processed book orders. After three years at Muskingum Becky, decided that she really wanted to get back in the Public Library field, so when she saw the Director’s position for the Fayette County Public Library she applied. Right now Becky is learning the ropes of the job and getting to know her patron clientele and community.

Becky and her husband Dave have traveled around West Virginia quite a lot and have pretty much fallen in love with this area.  They plan to get out and explore hiking trails, do some motorcycling, and maybe even do a little rafting.
