Ida Long Goodman Memorial Library


Laura Davis, Library Director, LIFE After-School Program Director

Mrs. Davis has been a St. John native since the age of 4. She attend St. John/Hudson for her entire K-12 schooling. Mrs. Davis began her career in education in 1998 and taught computer networking for Stafford High School. At the same time, she was the director for The Stafford County Center for Learning. In 2003 she assisted in opening and directing The St. John Learning Center. From there she taught kindergarten before earning her masters degree in Building Leadership. She served 5 years at Macksville Grade School as PreK-8th Principal before joining the St. John School District.

In her spare time she enjoys camping, scrapbooking, reading and watching a great movie. 


Barbara Graves, Cataloging Clerk and Library Secretary

Mrs. Graves began working at the library as an evening clerk in 1998 and has climbed the ladder to her current position of secretary/cataloging clerk of which she has held for over 10 years.  Because she loves to read, there is nothing she finds more challenging than to take a child that isn't as "turned on" by the reading experience, and find an author that they will be unable to reject, and have them grow to appreciate privilege of reading as much as she does.

In her free time, along with reading, she enjoys scrapbooking, crocheting, and a variety of sewing hobby's.  Her favorite children's book is Gerald McBoing Boing, by Dr. Seuss. My Darling, My Hamburger by Zindel is a favorite young adult book she enjoys sharing with our students, and Debbie Macomber is the adult author that receives the majority of her reading now.


Mark Bryant, Evening Clerk

Mr. Bryant has worked as the evening clerk at the library for 5 years.  He has a variety of interests but there are a couple of those interests that the library has benefited from.  The Star War's Day celebration in May which is now an annual event, is mostly because of his love of all things from a galaxy far, far away.  Mr. Bryant is also our resident comic hero expert. With a local ComicCon held in Hutchinson this past summer, he has established a Comic Book Club.  Let him know if you are interested! Something you may not know about Mr. Bryant; he is a city council member.
