Library Director Lillie Huckaby

Library Director

Hello, I’m Lillie Huckaby. I was born in Pueblo Colorado. After receiving a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education degree at Northwest Missouri State University I taught Kindergarten for 18 years, that was a lot of fun. Then I moved to Chickasha, Oklahoma and became a librarian. I received my Master of Library and Information Studies degree from the University of Oklahoma, go Sooners. I worked as the Children’s Librarian here at Chickasha Public Library for 10 years, that was a lot of fun. In the summer of 2014 I became the Director of Chickasha Public Library, this has been interesting. I teach Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance here at the Library and I host Chapter Chat here among my other myriad duties.

Circulation Supervisor

Hello, I’m Sandy Robertson. I have worked at the Chickasha Public Library for twenty two years. Over years I have seen many changes but the most exciting one was the 2003 remodel that added the circulation and staff work area. Some of my library duties include processing new books and and processing Inter Library Loans. If you request an item and it comes from another library I handle that process. Most of all, I enjoy working with patrons.
