Ben Franklin Academy Library
Joan Gilmour - Librarian
Joan Gilmour is returning to work after spending the past 3 years at home with her family. Prior to that she worked at Platte River Academy in the health room for 6 years so she is excited to see some familiar faces and looks forward to meeting and working with staff and families that are new to her.
She is originally from South Carolina where she graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Nursing. She and her husband, Mike, have lived in Highlands Ranch for 19 years. They are the parents of three children.
Her favorite hobby is spending time with her new granddaughter and reading so she is thrilled to be surrounded by books in her part time position as a librarian!
Carley Roberston - Librarian
Carley is thrilled to be working at Ben Franklin. She was a stay-at-home-mom for 7 years and is excited to be back in the work force and be working part-time at the school. She has a passion for reading and sharing the world of books to children.
Carley was born and raised in southern California, but she now calls Colorado her "home" because she can't imagine living anywhere else. She lives in Littleton with her husband Travis, their five kids, and their golden retriever, Bryce. Carley enjoys taking small road trips with her family and spending time outdoors. Her favorite hobby is reading, of course!
