Valentine Kephart, Children’s Librarian

Valentine Kephart has a passion for public service and went into the library field in order to give back to her community. Valentine grew up attending story times and doing school research here at the library. Shortly after earning her Master’s Degree in Library Science, she returned to the Rancho Mirage Library and Observatory to help inspire the same love of learning in our next generation.

“These past few years I have had the privilege to meet new avid readers and to develop and coordinate great programs, activities, and services for the families of the City of Rancho Mirage and the Coachella Valley. The Children’s Department and I look forward to continue encouraging lifelong learning through exciting new ideas and programs for all.”
