A rural librarian gets her due in a public radio profile that aired nationally today. Rachel Reynolds Luster is head of the Myrtle, Missouri, branch of the county library. On a tight budget, supplemented with bake sales and donations, she curates the library’s collection, helps patrons get online via the library’s Internet access and recommends books for readers, young and old. Rachel is a mom, fiddler, Ph.D. candidate, and some readers will know her from her participation in the National Rural Assembly.
