Library Director


Meet Renee Burke, our library director.

Renee Burke has been the director of the Elma Library since February of 2013. Renee received her bachelor of arts degree in teaching from the University of Northern Iowa. Renee was born and raised in the Elma area. She lives on a farm with her husband Pat. They have three children Samantha, Aaron and Jessica. Renee's favorite hobby is reading so working at the library is a perfect fit. Although there's no time for reading on the job, she definitely checks out books to take home. Renee enjoys being a part of the Elma Community and hopes to help you find the book, movie or information you need at the library.
