CROSSVILLE — Alta Rowell began volunteering with the Art Circle Public Library in the adult services department in late 2009, but she had been donating her time and effort before that as a longtime member of the Friends of the Library. Rowell works at the Friends of the Library Book Sales, sorts and sells books on e-Bay and is currently president of the Friends of the Library.

Rowell previously worked as an Army editor, secretary, reporter and bookkeeper before enjoying 20 years as an electrical engineer with GE in Massachusetts. She and her husband, George, lived in Ohio before retiring to Crossville. They have five children and 11 grandchildren.

Reading, painting, quilting and traveling are her favorite pastimes. Alta and George travel to the cooler weather of Vermont for the summers. The staff of the Art Circle Library appreciates her dedication and support!
