Sara Dittman

@Hardin - Children's Librarian

Sara Dittman is originally from Marshall County and graduated from Murray State University with a Bachelor of Social Work. She was employed as a social worker in Louisville and Mayfield before deciding to be a stay at home mom. While raising her small children, she was a substitute teacher at St. Matthew Christian Preschool. Since all of her children were enrolled in school, it was time to go back to work outside of the home. She is very excited about this new career as the Children's Librarian @Hardin.
