Brnadi GilleyHello, my name is Brandi Gilley. I am the new Teen's Library Assistant in Purcell. I am looking forward to the many programs our library will be hosting this Summer, including a writing workshop with teen authors. I am excited to meet with all the schools and get to know the teens in our area. I want to encourage everyone to come out and attend programs, as well as volunteer at the library. Feel free to contact me at the Purcell Library. I look forward to seeing everyone!
