Goshen County Library welcomes Cristine Braddy as Library Director

The Goshen County Library Board is excited to announce that Cristine Braddy will assume the position of Library Director. Braddy will supervise the Library’s full and part-time staff, manage the Library’s budget, plan and conduct programming, and continue the Library’s modernization process.

Braddy and her family moved to Torrington in 2011 and she has served as Interim Library Director since January 2, 2020. Her previous work experience includes teaching classes for Eastern Wyoming College, directing programming and groups at SONrise Church, supervising students and managing grants for the University of Nebraska-Kearney, and work with at risk youth for the University of Wyoming. Braddy earned her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Wyoming and her Master’s Degree from Liberty University.

“We are thrilled that Cristine has accepted the Director’s position,” commented Ellen Creagar, Library Board President. “Cristine has the skill set we need to move the Library forward. Her background with social media, programming, budgets and human services will facilitate the use of more technology for our patrons who want that, greater use of our spaces for families and community members, greater access to our materials, and a more high-profile on-line presence.”
