What’s your favorite thing about working at ELPL?

My number one most favorite thing about working at ELPL is getting the chance, every day that I work, to connect our patrons to our wonderful collection. The Public Library is a unique and beautiful place. A lot of my colleagues in the library world like to talk about how we are "more than just books." But I think books are pretty amazing, and I want everyone to know how amazing they are, what we have, and what we can get for you if we don't have it here in the collection right now. I want to talk to you about books and hear what you're reading!  These books here at the library are your books, just waiting for you borrow and enjoy.



Gabby Kindig:

My amazing coworkers! I work with some of the coolest, kindest, most interesting people I've ever met and it's a delight to be their colleague and friend. Also, I love being around books all day, and being able to enjoy and share all the incredible resources the library has to offer.
