East Central Regional Library is pleased to welcome Bruce Willms and Debbie Willms as the new Branch Librarians at the Wyoming Area Giese Memorial Library. Bruce and Debbie succeed Erica Myhre, who left us last fall to take a new position in Washington County. Debbie and Bruce (yes, they’re married) are sharing Branch Librarian duties, and will each be in the branch about 20 hours a week. Debbie will have primary responsibility for programming and children and teen activities, while Bruce will handle day-to-day operations.
Prior to joining East Central Regional Library, Debbie spent most of her library career at St Paul Public Library, beginning as a library specialist, then moving to become a supervisor in the West Seventh branch, and finally become Deputy Director. Becoming Branch Librarian in Wyoming pulls her back into library public services for the first time in a long time.
Bruce has spent his career in many libraries throughout the Twin Cities, including the East Side Freedom Library, Metropolitan State University Library, Ramsey County Library and Hennepin County Library systems, and Macalester College Library. He came to East Central Regional Library a little over a year ago as a Library Assistant in Wyoming. He served as interim Branch Librarian during the search for a new librarian.
East Central Regional Library is thrilled to be able to call on the years of library experience both Bruce and Debbie bring with them to the Wyoming Branch.
If you haven’t yet, please stop by the library to say hello and welcome them to Wyoming.
