Cherie Sanderson
Library Director, Boulder Junction Public Library

I fell in love with Boulder Junction many, many years ago while visiting with my boyfriend's (now husband) family. We came to town to eat breakfast at the Outdoorsman. My first impression was that it was just like the fictional small Alaska town in the TV series Northern Exposure - which was my favorite show at the time. Little did I know I would live here someday! Now that I've lived here for 20 years, I still love the small-town vibe mixed with the big outdoors vibe. You would think my favorite pastime is reading books since I'm a Library Director, but I rarely find the time to read! My spare time is spent biking, hiking, traveling, camping or hanging out with family and friends. And we're fortunate to have so many cool places to hangout here!
