LIBRARY NOTEBOOK: Honoring the life of Linda Moore (2023)

Wythe-Grayson Regional Library wishes to honor the memory of Linda Coulter Moore, who died in an automobile accident Thursday evening.

She started her career with WGRL at the Grayson County Public Library as a Library Assistant, and was later promoted to Youth Services Coordinator at Wythe County Library where she was creating an increasing variety of programs to attract a growing number of toddlers, preschoolers and elementary school students. She started this year off by offering rotating options for an after-school program for elementary school age students. Linda enjoyed going to the schools in Wythe County, promoting reading to early elementary students and working with the teachers.

She planned a variety of programs at Wythe County Public Library and Rural Retreat Public Library. She was pleased at seeing a growing number of children attending programs and enjoying all the outreach activities in the community. She was in the process of building an impressive collection of STEM/STEAM kits to foster creative thinking and help children broaden their horizons.
