Meet Kayleigh Dyer

Kayleigh Dyer was recently promoted to the Technical Processing Assistant for the Alamance County Public Libraries from her part-time position at the Graham Public Library. Congratulations!

How long have you worked with the County?
It’ll be seven years in February 2021.

Where are you from originally?
I’ve lived a bit all over NC; Bahama, Hillsborough, Charlotte. I currently reside in Alamance County.

When you were little, what was your dream job?
I went through phases. I think there was figure skater and veterinarian at some point.

What was the best part of your week/weekend?
I was able to have a little downtime to myself; cook what I wanted to cook, have the television off, and enjoy the company of my dogs. But I also had a surprise visit from my niece and we watched movies all day when it rained.

If your life was a song, what would the title be?
Funny you should ask this! I’m actually named after the song “Kayleigh” by Marillion though I don’t think that’s what my song title would be. I do know it would be folky/country probably (I grew up on a horse farm) with a twist of pop but have lyrics more like Hozier or Fleetwood Mac.

Are you involved in any community projects or organizations?
I also work for Burlington Recreation and Parks so I am involved with some of our events that we provide to the community.

What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
I’m very open to trying new things! But maybe kimchi? It’s the one that my friends and family are always like “Say what?” Or gator tail, I’ve had that too.

What’s your favorite TV Show?
I enjoy most types of media (music, movies, tv, books) and am not picky. I do re-watch when I’m sick (or when I broke my wrist earlier this year) some favorites such as the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The 10th Kingdom, or Parks and Recreation (all of which we carry at the library).

What is your favorite thing to spend money on?
Traveling and experiences. Or candles. Lol.

What’s the most interesting thing you’ve learned recently?
I just used an InstaPot for the first time over the weekend and boy, was that an amazing, easy, and quick culinary experience!
