News and Events



Meet Danielle

Hello all! My name is Danielle Foust and I am the new Youth Service Librarian at the Warren County Public Library. I am very excited to get to know all of you and share my ideas, love for reading and excitement with you.

I have always loved reading and working with children, therefore I worked for the Monmouth-Roseville School District for three years after graduating from Monmouth College. I have been fortunate enough to work with students ranging from pre-k and through to the high school level. I love my job as a librarian because I continue to help children of all ages, as well as their parents.

I know you all miss Julie terribly and I have some big shoes to fill, but I am very eager to help you with any questions you have, or recommendations you may need. Any opportunity to get a book in a new pair of hands makes my day worthwhile.

Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life.
–Sidney Sheldon

The Aqua Project

After a few cases of ich depleted our tank, we’ve got some new fish!  The Jake Wolf Memorial Fish Hatchery near Peoria donated a large mouth bass, several black crappies and more bluegills to our library.  Check out the new plants and fuller tank!
