Becky Schroeder

Becky was a trustee from 2000-2008 who helped the library come into the 21st century. When given the opportunity to serve on the board again, she most eagerly accepted the position to help further move the library into the new century. As a retired Hardin County teacher and avid reader, she knows the importance of a library in such a growing community as ours. She also loves thoroughbred horses, horse racing, and the Kentucky Derby so she works part time at the Kentucky Derby Museum in Louisville. Other activities include daylily gardening, quilting, and traveling with her husband Joe. While in foreign countries, Becky always tries to find out about public libraries and tries to visit one when possible.
