Three new Library Associates are starting in December. We're thrilled to welcome:
Vanessa Perger -- Vanessa was previously a Library Aide with our Community Engagement team, and she will continue on in our Community Engagement division. She is extremely talented when it comes to creative and fun displays, and she gets rave reviews from patrons and staff alike. She'll have the storytime for toddlers and work with our volunteers at First Friday events, among other responsibilities.
Elliot Stapleton -- Elliot worked for us as a Substitute Library Associate about a year ago, until he left for a full-time position elsewhere. In the last year, he's been doing outreach and storytimes, and while he loved the work, he wanted to do it in his home community of Camas. Lucky for us, because Elliot is fantastic! He'll be joining the Community Engagement team, providing preschool storytimes and some outreach.
Leah Burch -- Leah has been a Substitute Library Associate for us since August, while doing double duty as Access Services Coordinator at Natural University of Natural Medicine in Portland. Her understanding of acquisitions and the overall philosophy of access in libraries are key to her new role on our Content Delivery team. While Leah will be focusing primarily on cataloging, she will also play a pivotal role on our User Experience and Display teams.
