Meet Brenda Kaczmarski, Deer Park Public Library's new director.
The Deer Park Public Library has a new director, Brenda Kaczmarski. And as in the past, the library director has a busy schedule planned for patrons featuring a winter reading program, story and craft time, game night plus many other activities.
Although Deer Park is the smallest municipality in Wisconsin to host a library, the library itself is one of the state's most modern. The library was also one of the first in the area to have T-1 high-speed computer access, even before the main library in Eau Claire.
The Deer Park Library had very modest beginnings when it originated in 1972. Initially vacant space was used in several Deer Park business places and in August of 1999 the library moved into its very own structure.
Brenda Kaczmarski started working at the library in early 2006 and in April she assumed the duties of director from Shirley Perkins.
Brenda has lived in this area for most of her life growing up in western Stanton Township in the Cedar Lake area and attending school in Osceola. Currently she lives just outside of Deer Park.
Brenda said she is impressed with Deer Park area residents' dedication and hard work for the community.
