Scott Bonner

Scott Bonner has been the director of the Ferguson Municipal Public Library since July 1. The library has been doing a lot of programming for the people of Ferguson, and hosting other organizations that needed space to do their work. Other professional library jobs include 7 years as Adult Services Provider and Technology Librarian at Richmond Heights Memorial Library, and a short time in charge of the Julia Davis Branch of the St. Louis Public Library system.  In a previous career, Scott worked in mental health, mostly in lock-down facilities with kids and adolescents.  He’s 43, and married with 4 kids, ranging in ages from 11 years to 8 months — 3 boys and a baby girl.  Hobbies include reading for the 3 minutes of free time he gets each day, and playing table top role play games when he has an active gaming group.
