Phil Pfuehler photo Katie Chaffee's office looks out onto the public library's basement gallery that reflects exhibits that she brings in, designs and sets up. The current one, called the All-School Art Show, has local K-12 grade artwork from public and private schools running through May 27. More students than ever are taking part, with 423 exhibitors compared to the 215 when Chaffee started the school show years ago. She says interest in the library gallery has grown along with its reputation.

During a job interview more than six years ago, Katie Chaffee was asked why she deserved the newly created position of event coordinator for the lower library gallery.

She replied, "Because I've been waiting for this job longer than anyone else. It's what I've always wanted to do...I envisioned this job when they first built the library (in 1997)."
