Ms. Bishop joined Dayton Metro Library in 2010 and transferred to Huber Heights in 2012. She has served in libraries in Oklahoma, New York, Virginia, and California. Kim loves learning about new places and cultures through their cuisine. So, naturally, her favorite books are cookbooks! Kim also enjoys getting food for thought from "geeky" nonfiction titles.
Huber Heights employs a diverse staff of 12 full-time, 4 part-time, and 13 aides. This location also provides volunteer opportunities for adults and teens. Librarians at Huber Heights specialize in services for adults, children and teens. The staff is happy to provide assistance with technology, suggestions on what to read, watch, or listen to next, support emerging literacy, set-up and troubleshoot electronic devices used to access online library resources, and offer help with resume building and online job hunting.
The Huber Heights Branch is one of the busiest branches in the Dayton Metro Library system. Partnerships with the City of Huber Heights, Huber Heights Senior Center, Huber Heights City School District, Huber Heights Early Readiness Coalition, Sinclair Community College – Huber Heights Campus, YMCA – Huber Heights, Ohio Virtual Academy, Huber Heights Chamber of Commerce, Wayne Township Huber Heights Historical Society, Five Rivers MetroParks, Garden Station, Huber Heights Farmers’ Market, The Foodbank, Toys for Tots, Aullwood’s Farm Babies, and Girl Scouts of Western Ohio help the Branch staff serve patrons of all ages with engaging, interesting, and educational programming.
The Huber Heights Branch Library needs more room than available in its current leased space, even though it is the largest branch in the system. Community input will be gathered before a decision is made as to the best location for a new building to serve this high use branch.
