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 am currently enrolled in graduate studies at The University of North Texas and I am a graduate of UTEP.
I welcome you to volunteer in the library or come in to check out books with your child before or after school. I look forward to meeting you!
