Library Director

Meet Kayleigh Septer, Our Library Director.

In 2010, after graduation from Iowa Wesleyan University, Kayleigh Septer became a night clerk in the Children's Department at the Mount Pleasant Public Library. Over the next ten years, she worked her way up through many different roles in the library. After graduating with her MLIS in December of 2016, she became the library's first ever Reference Librarian. She wasn't done, there, however, because in December 2020 - she became the library's next director. What she enjoys most about her job is that she gets to share the love of libraries with her community. Outside of the library she enjoys going to movies, spending time with friends, reading, and hanging out with her cats.


Evelyn: Look, I...I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, Mr. O'Connell, but I am proud of what I am.
Rick: And what is that?
Evelyn: a librarian.
