A fifth-generation citizen of Drain and the granddaughter of library namesake, Mildred Whipple, Anne Campbell has been a library patron for as long as she can remember. Anne brings over 20 years of library employment experience to the board. Currently, Anne is the librarian for the North Douglas School District, working in both the high school and elementary/middle school libraries.
Jerri was born and raised in Drain Oregon, she has worked for U.S. Bank Drain Branch for 21 years. Jerri is active in the community and currently serves on the North Douglas Booster Club Board. Jerri feels that the library is positive and healthy for our community. It is more than walking in and checking out books. The library has lots to offer and is essential to our community, and for many residents it is their primary or only source of information.
Becky has only lived in the district for a year, but has lived in North Douglas County the majority of her life. She has been a mortgage loan officer since graduating from the University of Oregon in 1995. Becky feels access to gaining knowledge provided by the library is instrumental to the community.
Valarie has lived in the district since 2003. She is a retired librarian who was the branch manager of the Mildred Whipple Library from 2007 - 2013, when it was part of the Douglas County Library System. In early 2018, Valarie spearheaded the campaign and formation of the North Douglas Library District. She views libraries as the centerpieces of their communities, providing opportunities and access to community members of all ages and interests. Valarie sees the Mildred Whipple Library, as part of the North Douglas Library District, as a warm, welcoming, friendly place that provides vital services for all Drain area residents, making our community brighter and better.
