About the painter of the Morton Public Library chair, Susan Kelso... Since joining the library staff in 2017, Susan has brought her crafty skills to summer reading decorations and our outstanding escape room. She also brings her decorating and design skills to her church’s VBS décor as well. Susan has always enjoyed making, creating and crafting things. Her work ethic is inspired but her pastor’s charge that something worth doing is worth doing with excellence. Based on her past successes helping with library décor and attention to detail, Susan was asked to paint the Library’s chair for the MCF fundraiser. The chair is based on a book design and some of the books on the chair are library staff favorites and others are classics and some represent the variety of genres available. Susan lives in Morton with her husband Scott and is the proud mom of Jennifer Kelso and Elizabeth Peterson and became a grandma this year to Amara.
