Since January, Skokie Public Library’s previous School Services Liaison, Susan Carlton, has been leading the Library’s outreach team in an innovative new role as the Community Engagement Manager. As a part of this department, I have been given the exciting opportunity to become the Library’s School Services Librarian.
Before pursuing Library Science, I spent a year teaching fourth grade at a bilingual school in Central America. After my return to Illinois in 2010, I began working in the Youth Computer Lab at Skokie Public Library. I was immediately impressed by the Library and knew that I wanted to be a part of the significant role it was playing in the community. I decided to attend Dominican University’s Graduate School of Library Science while I worked in Youth Services at public libraries in Arlington Heights, Oak Park and Skokie. After completing my MLIS, I began as a Youth Librarian at Skokie Public Library and have really enjoyed working in the richly diverse Skokie community. I am looking forward to developing strong and thriving relationships with the local schools and using Library Links as a great tool for our collaboration!
