Betty Lawson

Betty Lawson has been the Children’s Librarian at the Wayne County Public Library in Honesdale, Pennsylvania, for the past thirteen years. After attending college at the State University of New York at Delhi, she moved to Florida where she became the Director of Admissions at a private school of special education. Before finding her current library position, she was a stay at home mother. Her love of reading to her own three children first led to a volunteer position coordinating story times at her present library. She now oversees the children’s department, but her specific concentration is programming for children birth to five years old. Over the years, she has become passionate about her literacy outreach to lower income families and has been asked to speak on the topic at various statewide conferences. She recently initiated a literacy program at the Wayne County Correctional Facility that helps incarcerated parents connect with their children at home via recorded readings. She is madly in love with her job!
