Hometown: St. Paul
Position: Evening & Weekend Reference Librarian
How did you end up working at CSP?
I'm an alum! I was a student worker while I went to school here so it made a lot of sense to come back and take the reference position.
When did you decide to be a librarian, and what did you go to school for?
I started working at the circulation desk and got interested in my senior year, so kind of late. I love working in the library and finding information! I decided to take that extra step and get the degree--Master of Library and Information Science.
What's it like being part of a mixed student/adult staff?It is different from my usual experience working in a public library setting. I like it. It brings back my college years working in the library.
What's your dream job?
I do love working here, but I would love to be a public librarian full-time. Right now I'm working here at Concordia part-time, and also over at the Dale Public Library part-time.
What's your favorite part of your job?
I love helping people with the research for a paper! Just helping someone is a good feeling, and I like meeting and talking to the students as well.
What is your favorite book?I have many favorite books! One of my favorite is a children's book, The Rainbow Fish. I read it to some kids for a class assignment and had a lot of fun!
