Holmes moved here with her husband, Dell, in December 1998. Her first day working at the Dalhart library was October 1, 2000.

“My husband works for Union Pacific. We moved here for his job for Hutchinson, Kans.,” she said. 

Holmes has always loved books and has enjoyed her time working at the library.
