Fairview in Transition

By Dawn Green, Fairview Branch Librarian

fairviewThis month finds the Fairview Branch in a transition.  Kathy Grimenstein, Branch Manager, is retiring after 17 years with the Williamson County Public Library system. She has been in Fairview all that time except for a period of time (2005-2007) during which she served as Assistant Director at the Main Branch.

A beloved figure in Fairview, “Miss Kathy” has actively led Toddler-Time and Preschool Story-Time for many years. She says “ My favorite tasks are working with the preschool children” and having the preschool children grow into high school seniors and still call me “Miss Kathy” are highlights for her. She also enjoys helping patrons with questions about books or anything in general.

Kathy is proud of the fact that the Fairview Branch is a fast-growing and popular part of the Fairview community. The library programs that she has developed have been well attended and are enjoyed by children of all ages. She is proud of the library’s position as a valued asset in the town where her children were raised, She and her husband Jim have 3 children and 9 grandchildren. She is looking forward to having more time to spend with them during her upcoming retirement. She plans to do some volunteer work, relax and read, read, read!

We are pleased to welcome Philip McAndrew as the new Branch Manager. He comes to Fairview from the Main Branch where he was previously the YA department head. The library is looking forward to good things for all.
