Jay took the job of director in 1998 after spending three years as Cook’s children’s librarian. During her tenure in Tamworth, the automated catalog has doubled in size, and the open hours per week have increased from 20 to 32. The 110 year-old building, with the new Alt Children’s Wing, has quadrupled its usable space, and attendance and circulation have nearly tripled. She feels blessed every day to be working with such a wonderful staff and board to serve the Tamworth community. She also has a passion for book arts, kayaking, gardening and skiing.
