Garden City residents: meet your new librarian!

Jana Riggs is the new branch manager at the Garden City Branch of Cass County Public Library.

Hi! I’m Jana Riggs, the new manager at the Cass County Public Library in Garden City.

Garden City is my hometown. My husband and I both graduated from Sherwood, where our children currently attend school. We have a daughter who is in middle school and a son who will be there in a couple years. They keep us busy with music lessons, sports, Scouts and clubs.

I’ve worked a wide variety of jobs over the years and took the long way to a degree in English at the University of Central Missouri. I’m especially pleased to put it to use at the library.

We recently bought a “fixer-upper” in Creighton, lured by the promise of fruit and nut trees and a huge yard to romp around in. We love the Sherwood community, our roots are firmly planted here, and I look forward to serving our community at the library.
