I am pleased to be working at the George F. Johnson Memorial library as a librarian. This is not my first experience at the GFJ library. For the past 9 years I worked as a page and then an intern. As an intern my job included running open hours and teaching classes in the library’s Tech Center. I specialize in young adult services and technology support. I also enjoy presenting programs and teaching classes. I look forward to working with patrons and helping you with your information needs.
