Meet the Director

The current Hanston City Library director is Amy Halling. Before taking on the role as director in June of 2022, she served on the library board for 3 years. Amy is originally from Norton, KS where she worked at the library there from 2011-2012. Amy has worn many hats when it comes to career and job choices as she enjoys doing different things. She believes it definitely keeps life interesting. She has a degree in Psychology from Fort Hays State University and she also worked as a cosmetologist for 8 years prior to moving to Hanston. Her absolute favorite thing is being a mom to her three kiddos. Amy and her husband Wes have twin girls and little boy. They prefer the small-town life and think Hanston is the perfect place to raise children and feel such a sense of community. Being at the library is one of the best parts of her day. She likes to catalog new materials, help patrons find good reads and she loves being able to serve our special community.
