Manager, Library Services
I’ve been here for almost three months now, and it’s been awesome. People are so nice, I mean ridiculously nice. When I started, I immediately felt that people were connected to the mission and the kids.
Our library is here for all staff and patient families. We have journals, medical and nursing textbooks, a leadership and management collection and even fiction from our monthly book club.
Our day-to-day business is helping people find a book or a full-text article from a journal. But we also do a lot behind the scenes to make things easier for folks. When someone comes in with a patient-care topic — it could be a physician needing information quickly to make a decision or wanting to see the latest studies on a topic — we drop everything else.
“Ultimately I save people time so they don’t get frustrated trying to find information. I feel like I’m part of something and am really helping people.
