Why did you decide to work at the library?

I've only been here for a couple weeks but in the interview process I was really impressed with some of the initiatives already happening at the Library and I was excited about more opportunities to engage with the community.

Before coming to Meriden I was the Head of Children's Services at the Booth & Dimock Memorial Library in Coventry, CT. Before that I was at a small library in New Hampshire for a few months. I got my Master's from the Univeristy of Wisconsin-Madison. I also volunteered at my local public library in a very small town in Minnesota from the time I was 11 through High School!
