Amanda Ryder is a Library Assistant at the Two Harbors Public Library in Two Harbors, MN. It is a small, rural library and is a member of the Arrowhead Library System (which geographically covers about 23% of the state). Amanda has spent the better part of the last eight years working there – and loving every day of it! She did leave just long enough, however, to complete her student teaching and earn degrees in English and Teaching Communication Arts and Literature from the University of Minnesota Duluth. Amanda is a part of the Collaboration focus group.
