National Library Week: Fast Forward

Today marks the last day of National Library Week.  My posts for the past few days featured women who were firsts. They paved the way for this remarkable young librarian--Kimberly Smothers Clayton. 

Ms. Clayton is a modern Renaissance woman, a gifted musician with degrees in music, biology, business, and education, but her love of reading drew her to librarianship. 

She is a Georgia native and her favorite author is Alice Walker. She cites The Third Life of Grange Copeland as her favorite book in Walker's oeuvre.  Just as her predecessors preserved history for future generations, Ms. Clayton does as well. She is a conscientious steward of cultural knowledge for the next generation.

Ms. Clayton has spread her love of reading by also serving as a children's librarian.
