New Adult Outreach Services Librarian
It is our pleasure to introduce you to our new adult outreach services librarian, Lisa Luecke!
We sat down with Lisa to learn a little bit about her background and what she does at the library. Check out our interview below.
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a Renaissance soul; one with too many interests to pick just one! I tend to reinvent myself every few years, with a need to keep learning, growing and evolving. My first career out of college was retail, where I worked my way up to a buyer for Elder-Beerman. After graduate school, I began a career in health care which lasted almost 10 years. I’ve also been a nanny, taken yoga teacher training, worked in a corporate cubicle and helped found a non-profit organization that resettled Rwandan refuges to the Dayton, OH area in the late 1990s.
What is your favorite thing about the adult outreach services librarian position?
It’s a fabulous service to our community!
What services do you provide as the adult outreach services librarian?
I select and deliver library materials to patrons who cannot physically come to one of our branches. I read aloud to seniors and the MRDD population at Active Day in Fort Thomas. I do a book talk presentation at the Barrington once a month.
Tell us something about your role in the library that most people wouldn’t know but should know about.
I pick the majority of the items for the patrons. A small percentage of the people I visit give me specific requests. The others have preferred genres and authors, but they leave the choosing to me. This can be quite challenging, especially with DVDs.
What made you want to work at the library?
I love books! The library has long been a safe sanctuary for me; one with unlimited possibilities.
If you had to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, what two items would you want to have with you?
Colored pencils and paper.
