About Us


Donna SuttonDirector

I have been with the library since 2003 and have worked under other directors and at the end of 2015 I became the director of the Carter County Library. I am originally from Dexter, MO and moved up here with her son Dylan in 2003 to be around my family and fell in love with the people in this town and decided to stay. I am very grateful for the opportunity to have started work at the library

Teresa MorganAsst. Director 

I have lived in Van Buren since1999 and live with my husband of 12 years. I came to Van Buren and worked with my parents and helped them with their motel until 2013. I started part time at the library in 2011 and moved to full time when my parents sold the motel. I am thankful for the opportunity to have started working at the library and enjoy working with my co-workers.
