    Hi I'm Anne Heidrich, manager of the Parsons Branch. My favorite book is The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. I also enjoy discovering new picture books to read to my toddler son. When not working or being a mom, I enjoy gardening, quilting and traveling.

    Stop by – I'd love to show you what we offer at Parsons.
