Betty Lawson has been the Children's Librarian at the Wayne County Public Library in Honesdale, Pa for the past 14 years. After attending college at the State University of New York at Delhi, she moved to Florida where she became the Director of Admissions at a private school for special education. Before finding her current library position, she was a stay at home mother. Her love of reading to her own 3 children first led to a volunteer position coordinating storytimes at her present library. She now oversees the children's department, but her specific concentration is programming for children birth -5 years old. For the past 3 years, Betty has been on the steering committee of the statewide early literacy initiative, "Cruise Into Kindergarten." Over the years she has become passionate about her library outreach to struggling families and the incarcerated. In her spare time, she likes to read, bake, kayak and exercise...in that order! She is madly in love with her job.
