About the Library Director

Meet Kristin Fields our library director.

Welcome to the Farnhamville Public Library!  I am the (relatively) new library director.  I live south of Farnhamville with my husband, Paul, on our farm.  We live on an unofficial century farm.  In fact my mother-in-law, Phoebe Fields (Haynes) grew up on our farm.

We have an indoor cat, outdoor cats and an outdoor dog. My husband raised cattle, corn, beans, and hay.

I am a former fifth grade teacher with the Prairie Valley school district.  At Prairie Valley, Cedar Valley, and Paton-Churdan I taught for a total of 35 years.  I have four grown children who are all Prairie Valley graduates. I am also a grandmother of four.

I grew up in Ames, graduated from Iowa State University, and have a masters degree from Morningside College.  After working at the library since January 2012, I am now a certified librarian.

Reading is my passion! I also love to travel, exercise and go to the movies.
