Principal Officer

Ms. Cathy Farley

BIO

I have been the Director of the Library since 1997. The Foundation was formed in 2000 and added to my responsibilities. I enjoy helping the Foundation achieve its goals.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"I have been with the White County Library Foundation since its inception. This Foundation was established to raise awareness and funding for a new Library for the White County community. We were successful in that effort and now are in the process of revamping our goals for what we envision to be the Library's role in community development and education. This Foundation is blessed with a very active Board of Directors who serve in a volunteer capacity. The day-to-day support of the Library comes from the local governmental bodies, so there is little administrative overhead."
