Meet Mary Friesen. She is our interim director until a new permanent director is hired.

Mary lives on the hobby farm near Baraboo where she grew up. She left the area for 30 years while she raised a family and worked in journalism and libraries. Mary returned to her home and was the Wyocena Public Library Director from 2007 until her retirement at the end of 2014. She and her husband have two grown children and one grandchild with another on the way. They enjoy spending time with their four horses and golfing.
