Adult Services Director, Homer Township Public Library

Location

Homer Glen, IL
I’m the Adult Services Director at the Homer Township Public Library in Homer Glen, IL. I’m currently in a management position but I make sure to take time to connect with our patron community. I help patrons of all ages find answers to their questions, some questions are really interesting! I love learning something new every day. Patrons often ask for book suggestions and discuss books they’ve just finished reading. It is great to take a minute to chat about what we’re reading, especially with people who love reading as much as I do! I also instruct some of the library’s computer classes. The classes attract patrons of all ages. It’s fun to introduce seniors to the internet – they’re amazed at the wealth of information out there. I find it important to teach them how to find reliable web sources. Every day I come to work knowing that I’ll encounter something new, whether it’s an interesting fact, a book suggestion, a new patron, or an unusual situation (which tends to happen a lot at public libraries.) There is no “typical” work day when you work at a public library. Every day is a new experience!
