About the Library Director
I am Leona E. Darrah. I have been the Library Director at Karl Miles LeCompte Memorial Library since October of 2016. I have been married for over 15 years to a local boy. We have a son that is a teenager. I went to college to be an elementary teacher and graduated from Upper Iowa University in 2001. I home school our son in the morning and work at the library in the afternoon. I have always loved to read. I get teased "I can't wait until you finish that book, so I can have your undivided attention." or "How can you read so fast?" In high school I helped out in the school library with what ever they needed me to do. Before taking this job I worked at Humeston Public Library for five years. I started out as a sub, which quickly moved in to clerk, then I was moved up to Assistant Director.
