The Revelstoke branch of Okanagan Regional Library welcomed new head librarian Kendra Runnalls last week.

The Kelowna native and her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Poe (after the American Romantic Movement poet) are looking forward to the small town lifestyle. “It’s everything I hoped it would be so far,” Runnalls said. “Gorgeous natural surroundings – I love being able to walk everywhere.”

Runnalls has served as a school librarian and an assistant community librarian for ORL and most recently worked in Oyama. She commented on the “fabulous” partnerships built by the recently retired former librarian Joan Holzer, saying she hopes to maintain and build on them.

This summer, she’s encouraging youth to participate in the summer reading club.

Holzer is a fan of the classics. Which one would she recommend for this summer? Dickens’s David Copperfield.

She’s also a crime mystery fan and recommended writers Margery Allingham, P.D. James and the Inspector Morse series.

Runnalls wants to get involved with the outdoors scene, including hiking, snowshoeing and getting back onto cross-country skis.
