About Deitra Kemmer

What do you enjoy about working at the Friendshop?

What I enjoy most about working at the Friendshop is getting to know the people who come into the store. And of course, being surrounded by the amazing books that are donated by our community for the benefit of the library. Just to see the variety of books available is astounding.


What is your favorite book of all time?

I really have too many personal favorites! Girl of the Limberlost, Anne Mcaffrey's Dragon series. The Name of the Wind; only to mention a few.


What genres do you like to read?

I do not select my books based on genre. I have fairly diverse taste and will read just about anything.


What three books would you recommend from the Friendshop?

So many great books pass through our store- and quickly- that if I recommend it, it will be gone in an instant.

We have had books such as Where the Crawdads Sing, The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell, The Book Women of Troublesome Creek (one of my favorites) pass through our hands. So, we really do get current reads and vintage ones as well. The Phsycum from 1761 is also one of my favorites.
