Describe yourself in three words. 

I am passionate, determined & honest.

What’s an average day at your library?

An average day consists of checking emails, checking in/out materials for patrons, doing after school programs at the library, organizing… there is always something to do!

What is the best career advice you’ve ever received?

Don’t be busy, be productive!

What is the coolest thing in your office or on your desk? 

Coolest thing, I think, on my desk is my barcode scanner. At one point, I had to type the numbers for patrons or materials being signed out, now it’s just a quick scan!

Why do you think library work is important? 

I love libraries. They are important because they are useful for anyone. There are so many free educational resources, free access to computers, some offer different programs, and of course, lots of books!
