Area Library plans 'relaxing' adult coloring

Staff writer

Hillsboro Public Library’s new library director, who started working at the library Jan. 6, will be a familiar face to some library goers.

“I worked here about 10 years ago as a library clerk, so I knew I liked working here and liked the people who worked here,” Jeanie Bartel said. “That’s why I was interested, and I always thought it would be fun.”

Bartel has worked as a bookkeeper on a farm, and as a mom.

She said she was excited about the opportunity, and has begun to think about how to improve the library.

“I want to make it more user-friendly and to build upon the good things that have already been done in the past,” Bartel said.

Library assistant Tania Sorensen said that she thought Bartel will do a fantastic job.

“We’ve enjoyed the first week we’ve worked with her,” Sorensen said. “She’s very easy to work with.”
