Hello, my name is Jarrod McCarty and I’m a Library Associate Specialist at the Daviess County Public Library. You’ll see me sometimes coming and going from the library as I deliver books for our homebound service throughout the community. Some of the staff considers me the “music guy”. If you have any questions about our music collection or Freegal music, please let me know.
I’m married (my wife Leslie works in the Kentucky Room) and we have three pugs, Prissie, Pumpkin and Murphy. We both enjoy traveling when we can find the time to do so. I love live music, especially during the summer when the bluegrass festival season begins. You can often find me at various establishments where live music occurs. I’m a diehard UK basketball fan. I’ve been known, on occasion, to scream at the T.V. during the game.
Shannon Sandefur is the fearless leader of the Public Services Department on the 2nd floor, which contains the Juvenile, Audio-Visual, Teen, and Adult Fiction collections. She oversees ordering for the children’s collection, audio-books, and large print materials, and also heads the library’s community outreach. As an extension of the library’s outreach, Shannon works with various local and state agencies to improve the lives of children in Daviess County and is a recent graduate of Emerge Owensboro, a “program of the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Corporation focused on educating and engaging individuals to reach their potential and maximize their impact in the community.”
In her free time, Shannon loves to read (favorite book: The Gazebo by Emily Grayson), watch tv (favorite program: Dexter), spend time with her family, and travel. Her most exotic destination was a medical mission trip to Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
