I’m Kara Straumanis. I’m Rivendell’s Office Assistant and Programs Coordinator responsible for the Rivendell Library. I have an M.A. in Library and Information Science. Before moving to Fort Collins and joining the Rivendell staff, I managed the University of Iowa Art and Physics Libraries and worked in school libraries with the Iowa City Community School District. I love being able to connect kids with books, reading and information! I’m very happy to be part of this process at Rivendell. Have a question? See Kara in the Front Office. Email: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m Carol Fix. Both of my children attended Rivendell, during which time I spent 10 years helping in classrooms, contributing to fund-raising and event committees, and working in the library. Even though my children have moved on to attend middle and high schools, I still consider myself a part of the Rivendell library.
Because I’m self-employed, I have the freedom to spend time at school getting good books into the hands of enthusiastic readers! And, because I enjoy organizing people and promoting events; it’s in the library programs, including the planning and promotion of book fairs, that I put my degree in Public Relations to use.
