Brenda Carlson Spratt is a Dixon native and has been with Books on First since 2000. One day, our local copy shop/printer (an independent who is now unfortunately gone) created business cards and insisted that hers should have a title. With Proprietor and Proprietor/Manager already taken, Brenda opted for "Larry's Favorite Employee." Indeed, she is of invaluable assistance to all of us here. Brenda's husband, Kevin (our go-to maintenance guy), as well as her two daughters, her granddaughter Sadie and grandson Isaiah, are familiar faces to our customers. Come in and visit with Brenda Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. But, you can see her book recommendations (especially for grandchildren) here 24/7!
