Librarian-Torres, Diana R.

Welcome to the Powell Library!

I am excited to be the new librarian at Powell! I am a native of El Paso and have also had the opportunity to live in Central Texas, Hawaii and North Carolina. I was a military spouse for 20 years up until my husband retired from the Army. I graduated from UTEP with a Bachelors degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I am currently working on my Master's Degree at the University of North Texas.
I welcome you to come into the library to check out books with your child before or after school. If you can help in the library, I would greatly appreciate it. We are always looking for volunteers.  I look forward to meeting you!
