Bitmoji Christy

Christy DeMeulenaere, Director
Christy has been the director at Ray Library since 2014.  She has a gift, she remembers every person who walks through our doors, what they like to read, and how she can help.  She lives in Ray with her husband and her beautiful daughter, Erin. They have a miniature dachshund, Spencer, and sometimes Spencer wears sweaters. One of her favorite book series is the Chronicles of the One by Nora Roberts.  Christy does all the hard things at the library like budgets and numbers and meetings.  Bring her coffee and you have a loyal friend forever.

Stephanie "Cricut" Marberg, Clerk
Stephanie, AKA CRICUT, is our resident crafty lady.  Some of us like to craft...Stephanie lives to craft.  Her mind is always whirling and she's an entire library (see what we did there) of ideas.  She has a regular day job, but we think she likes us more.  She is a Ray Township resident and her husband, Justin, is a Ray Firefighter also.  Her daughter Mya loves the library and she likes to do crafts too.  It must be in their genes.  One of her favorite books is The High Five Habit, by Mel Robbins.  High Five Stephanie, thanks for helping keep us crafty chic.

Marena Peraino, Clerk
Marena goes to Oakland University where she is majoring in Biomedical Science.  She also loves to dance her heart out.  When she's not saving the world or creating her own version of footloose, she enjoys baking and hanging out with her Maltese Yorkie Bella-Mia.  We are excited to have Marena on our team!  Marena also enjoys torturing herself with one of her favorite books, A Child Called "It", by Dave Pelzer.  

David, Clerk
David is a Senior graduating as a homeschooler who is dual enrolled at Macomb Community College.  He is the oldest of 6 and an avid proponent of 4H.  He shows chickens, lambs, and many many art projects at the Armada Fair.  When David isn't immersed in books, attending Civil Air Patrol and 4H, or feeding farm animals, he likes to hunt and spend time outdoors.  One of his favorite books that he would recommend is Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys.

Trish Bloom, Clerk
Trish joined us through our book club and became a library staple!  She always has 2-3 books going at a time and she will read just about any genre.  A recent favorite she would recommend is The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein.  Trish loves the water, so when you can get her nose out of the books, you'll probably find her toes in the water at the beach or the pool.  She has 3 adult children and 2 grandkids to keep her busy when she's not loving her new library job.  She also introduced us all to Cardio Drumming...thanks Trish! 

Deena VanCamp, Clerk
Deena and her husband Todd moved to Ray Township almost a decade ago with their now College-aged kids.  She recently retired from work as an environmental engineer.  Deena loves to hike the trails with her husband and their dog Gizmo.  She loves to garden and she enjoys photography too.  She also loves to watch Romeo High School Hockey too!  When she's not out in nature or waiting for the puck to drop, she likes to read books by David Baldacci and John Grisham.

Paige Jones, Clerk
Paige is our summer and school break helper who treks all the way down from the UP to help us out.  She's a "sure", "can do', kind of clerk.  She has a smile for everyone and guess what?  She's actually studying to pursue a career in Library Sciences!
