Long Beach Public Library, Youth Services Officer


Long Beach, CA
I am currently serving as the Youth Services Officer at the Long Beach Public Library, in a typical week I am participating in 2-3 programs including: preschool storytime, book clubs, and outreach fairs, school visits, parent workshops, and serving on city and statewide literacy committees. 75% of what I do is outside the library trying to get people to connect with our services and creating partnerships with small business, schools, and non-profit agencies. A 21st century librarian has be capable to collaborate, and integrate technology to meet the needs of our citizens. I've enjoyed working for public libraries for over a decade and have seen them change and reinvent their services to become a central hub of communities. These are exiting times for our profession and would invite you to come visit."
