Lily Draper, Library Assistant for Children’s Services at the Riverton Branch Library since 2013 has resigned her position to pursue a career at the Department of Family Services.

She implemented and led theater workshops for students and was instrumental in organizing the library’s Halloween play, which she wrote and directed. She also wrote and directed the national award winning video “The Devil Reads Nada”, that was awarded a $2,500 prize from TEI/Landmark. “We will miss her upbeat and vivacious personality here at the library,” said Gloria Brodle, branch manager.
