New youth services librarian at Ada Public Library

The Ada Public Library has a new youth services librarian, Chloe Rieder. She joined the staff the first full week of 2022.

The Icon sat down to talk with Rieder (pronounced “reader”) on a Monday morning when the library hosts drop-in toddler play. Rieder’s first guest was Jolene McCoy (pictured below), the daughter of Elspeth and Ray McCoy of Ada. This was Jolene’s first visit to the library and she had a marvelous time exploring the books and toys in the children’s area.

Rieder returned to her hometown of Jenera in 2021. She has a bachelor’s degree from Heidelberg University and a Master of Library and Information Science degree from University of Missouri-Columbia.
