Meet Your Librarian: Rhonda Coleman
Rhonda was taught early the value of books and reading. She was blessed to have a mother who loved her, and who read to her daily before she started school. Her mom encouraged learning and filled their home, and Rhonda’s life, with books. During her school years, devoted teachers found time weekly to take Rhonda’s class to the school library and there were also field trips to the local public library. No wonder she is a lifelong reader and learner!
A Colorado native born in Glenwood Springs, Rhonda grew up moving all over Western Colorado. She then spent time with her husband and two children in California, Minnesota, and Wisconsin before returning to the state four years ago.
Rhonda has a teaching background and reads a variety of books, with her favorite genre being Christian non-fiction. She has an adventurous spirit. At 18, Rhonda drove her brother’s stock car in a race... and won! When she turned 40, she celebrated by skydiving. She enjoys organic gardening, knitting, crafting, and putting up with 3 horses, 4 dogs, 1 cat, and 2 rabbits. When not at the library, you can find her at her teens’ sporting, 4-H, music, and other assorted events. She is also very active in her church. When she gets the chance she loves traveling; especially leaving the dead of Colorado winter behind in exchange for a sun-filled beach where she can enjoy the company of her husband and a good book.
