Hello! My name is Karen Allen and I’m the new manager at the Cass County Public Library in Harrisonville.
I am married and have twin 19 year old daughters. They recently graduated from Harrisonville High School and are now attending Truman State University in Kirksville, MO.
We are empty nesters and are slowly adjusting to the quiet house. We live on 5 acres in Harrisonville and have a few pets. I grew up in Belton, MO and graduated from MU. I have lived in Harrisonville for 17 years and my daughters attended school here.
I have worked for the Cass County Public Library for the past 9 ½ years at the Garden City Branch. I was the Library Clerk for the first 3 years and the Branch Manager for the remaining 6 ½ years.
I am excited to work at the Harrisonville branch in a community and library system that I am proud to call home.
– Karen Allen, Harrisonville Branch Manager
