What I am doing now.

I currently run a small branch library for the Orange Public Library system. I love interacting with the local community, presenting story times, and managing a staff of library assistants, clerks, and pages. I also help take care of the library building, reporting problems as they arise to the city’s great facilities crew. I have a lot of freedom to carry out my vision for the library and the community.

What are the most valuable skills I use in my job?

I was on the Digital Services track, and the IT and programming classes I took are a big help in the day to day technical needs of patrons and the library. We had the Internet go down at my branch and I was able to help brainstorm a solution to continue computer service for the library’s patrons since I was familiar with networking.
