It takes a village they say. Here at GCPL we are proud of our team. They contribute in various roles to keep library operations smoothly rolling along. They are valued members of the community. The #MeetGCPL blog highlights a library team member and lets you get to know them a little bit more, so when you see them at your local Branch you can connect further.

For this #MeetGCPL we would like to introduce you to Chris. Chris is originally from Southwest New York state. She currently works at our Chardon Branch as an Adult Services Assistant.

– Most memorable library experience:
My first library experience was as a child.  My older sister would take me to the library with her and drop me off in the children’s section, while she looked for books in the teen area.  I loved the picture books but couldn’t wait to be able to go with her and read the same books she did.
