Libby grew up in West Virginia, went to college and got married in Illinois, then moved to Arizona as a new bride. Throughout her life, she has enjoyed the opportunities of being a Lifetime Girl Scout - making new friends while camping, backpacking, caving, canoeing, kayaking, singing around the campfire and in Girl Scout chorus, learning to play the guitar, writing songs with her friends, and a myriad of other great activities. Before marriage, summer vacations usually found her at camp as a camper, counselor-in-training, apprentice counselor, waterfront director, or swimming instructor. When her youngest child became a Daisy Girl Scout, Libby volunteered her services and become certified to teach troop camping skills so that she could train and accompany her daughter's troop on camp outs. She also became a volunteer for the Arizona Cactus-Pine Girl Scout Council where she helped create a backpacking certification course so that leaders could be trained and certified to lead their older girl troops into the wilderness and deserts with what they could carry on their backs. Other certifications she has held include Basic First Aid, CPR, Water Safety Instructor, Wilderness First Aid, and Leave No Trace Instructor. Before employment at ASU, Libby's work history also included baby-sitter, surveyor's helper, Carden preschool teacher, cook, and housekeeper. She has worked at ASU Library since 1982.
