Face of the Day: Debbie Updegraff

Aren’t we lucky that this super fun lady is the person responsible for the juvenile books collections for the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library.  Debbie’s days are filled with dinosaurs, jokes, pets, wizards and such, and her nights and weekends are jammed with adult interests like live music and photography.  We felt this adorable Anne et Valentin “Amy” easily fit into both worlds.  Classic and timeless tortoise sculpted to a shape of whimsy with a splash of green at the temples seems to say “hey, I’m fun AND fashionable and I can recount every member of House Gryffindor or sing along to Wilco!”  We like it!
