Mulberry comes to Kenton County by way of the Owen County Public Library, where she worked for six years, five as assistant director and then as the director.

Prior to her time at Owen County, Mulberry worked at the Boone County Public Library (BCPL) for six years, having started as a volunteer. While she was working at BCPL, she earned her Masters of Library Science from the University of Kentucky.

Mulberry has served as a member of the Kentucky Public Library School Readiness Task Force, Leadership Owen County and was on the Board of the Owenton Chamber of Commerce.

Getting to know the community and staff will be Mulberry’s primary goal in the coming months.

“It’s not every day you get to work in an environment that is so creative and engaging,” she said. “Right now my number one focus is getting to know the community and what their interests and needs are.”

She is also working to familiarize herself with all of the great programs and resources available through the Kenton County Public Library system.

“From e-books, to databases, to the over 300 programs that we offer in the system each month, there is a lot to learn,” she said.

There is one thing that sets William E. Durr Branch apart from Faith’s other library jobs – Munch. Munch, the resident tortoise -a Facebook phenom and a member of the Durr family.

“I am trying to convince him that my office should be a regular stop on his morning walks.”

Mulberry lives with her husband and four children on their family farm in Grant County. She feels right at home working in rural Kenton County.

“Everyone has been so welcoming and I have heard such great things about this community,” she said. “I’m excited to be a part of it.”
