"I hope to make everyone proud," she smiled.
Petty was selected by the Adams Library Board of Trustees for the post following the resignation of Tina L. Norris, who has returned to Wisconsin.
"Tina had started some great programs," Petty said, but more input is needed from the community.
"We need to know what our patrons want. We want to be very involved in the community," she said. "It is important for them to consider the library a resource."
Petty said it is her personal goal to add more useful programs like desktop publishing and gardening classes.
"Gardening is very popular here and I would also like to start a seed sharing program like they have in Nashville," she continued.
"The challenge is to get programs relevant to the community," Petty said.
Petty started work at the Adams Memorial Library in November 2014. She is the daughter of Arthur and Margie Petty, who operated the Cloth Shop in Woodbury.
"We have our roots here," she smiled. "It's such a nice community. Everybody has been wonderful."
