    “I am excited to be working at the city library and be surrounded by such wonderful books,” Harrelson said.
    Harrelson, daughter of Norvella Burnett and the late Ray Burnett, has loved reading since she was a small child. In her youth, she checked out hundreds of books from the Conway Springs City Library.
    “The library board has done a great job of remodeling and improving the library in recent years,” Harrelson said. “I would like to invite everyone in for a visit, see the nice facility and browse for your favorite book or author.”
    The Conway Springs City Library currently has 11, 450 books. Many books popular authors, including Catherine Coulter, Janet Evanovich, Sue Grafton, John Grisham, Clive Cussler and James Patterson are available on the library shelves.
    Additionally, the library offers children and adult fiction, Western, Kansas, Inspiration and Science/Nature sections among others. Large print and audio books are also available.
