Mendocino Ellis, who prefers to be called “Miss Mendo,” is the new Children’s Librarian at the Weston County Library in Newcastle. A native of Texas, Miss Mendo moved to Newcastle about five years ago from Tulsa, Oklahoma. She was an avid reader growing up who saw the library as a safe haven, and she hopes to create those types of positive experiences for the library’s youngest patrons.
