Mike Mathews was appointed to the Library Board in 2017.
Mike is a transplant from east of the river, born in Aberdeen, SD. His family moved here, lock, stock and barrel in 1963. Mike's work experience includes soda jerk, carnival ride boy, and emergency physician. His hardest job was helping raise two children, technically still an active job.
Mike stated that the library will join his list of the other best things about living here – the Rapid City Municipal Band, Black Hills Symphony, the SDSM&T Museum of Geology, and Tuba Christmas.
