Meet the Staff

Stacy Goodhue
Library Director
Stacy Goodhue has served as the director of the Carlisle Public Library since 2013. She started at the library as an aide in 2011. She is originally from Fargo, ND and moved to Iowa to attend Simpson College. She lives in Carlisle with her husband and two children.
Nancy Webb
Adult Services Librarian
Nancy Webb joined our team in April 2022. She grew up on a farm in North Central Iowa – (is bilingual – speaks “farm” very fluently) and moved to Des Moines to attend DRAKE University. She has over 30 years of program, project management and serving customers. She currently lives in Carlisle and enjoys sharing books and learning with her granddaughter.
Marissa Friesen
Children’s Services Librarian
Marissa Friesen joined our staff in May of 2022! After teaching for the last five years, her classroom could no longer contain her enormous love for books and reading. Her bookshelves were overflowing and she wanted to spend the whole school day reading! And that love for reading landed her here as the Youth Services Librarian. She currently lives in Indianola with her husband and their three dogs. When she isn’t reading, you will likely find her sewing up a storm, enjoying time with her partner, or chasing after their pack of pups!
