kim_blantonKim Blanton, Staff Librarian
I was born and raised in the Bradford area and graduated from Bradford High School in 1984. My last 2 years of high school I attended the Upper Valley JVS. At the beginning of my senior year it was mandatory for us to find a job. I was hired on by a Miami county office and continued to work there for 31 years at which time I retired. I saw in the Stillwater Advertiser that there was a position open for a substitute librarian, so I applied. I really enjoy the patrons and people I work with.
