Meet the Librarians

Shara Berghuis

I am privileged to hold the position of Library Director at the Wray Public Library and recently celebrIMG_8614ated my 26th Anniversary as a Library Lady.

I became a Library Lady because I love a box of new books!  I love being part of the Wray Community and coming to a place I enjoy working at every day and serving the patrons.  

If I could, I would work on genealogy all the time and learn the stories of my patrons and of the past.  
Personally I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, movies and pizza.
You can always reach me by email.

Rachel Southards

I am the Assistant/ Children’s Librarian and the “go to" lady for the school teachers providing in- class materials available froIMG_8610m the library.  

I create the Storytime program using story books, crafts and fun, and am rewarded with weekly giggles from 3 to 5 year olds.  

I love coffee, crafts, cooking, reading, hunting, animals and my family.

As far as reading, give me a good mystery, children’s books, or historical fiction.

Please feel free to email me for a reading recommendation.

Robin Newton

I am a librarian at the library specializing in Interlibrary Loan and youth/adult programs. Library Clerk

I enjoy working with pre-teen youth in the Library Council and Travel Club. I also love working with our Social Stitchers Club.

My children have participated in the library programs through the years and I think the library is an amazing part of our community.

We have many resources to offer and I'm happy to be here and assist our library patrons.  Feel free to email me for assistance. 


Claire Gdanitz

I am the teen librarian at the library,  I officially became employed in June of 2021, but I have previously been involved in a few of the library's programs including book buddies and Storytime. 

I am so excited to be working here and getting to know, and assist, library patrons!

Augustus GdanitzAugustus

Hello! I am Augustus Gdanitz. I am currently a teen librarian and started in November of 2023. 

I’m always down to read a good book, but also enjoy participating in school clubs, playing instruments, being outdoors, and learning new random facts. I enjoy hearing and telling a good joke, but much like a popped balloon, they often fall flat. I have enjoyed my time here so far and hope to continue being able to serve the library and its patrons.
