Staff Spotlight - Sara

Posted on October 25, 2016 at 11:57 AM by Lindsey Kult

This week's staff spotlight is Sara! Each week a staff member will use the blog and new book display (closest to stairs side) to share their favorite genres, books, and authors! If Howard Miller has a copy of a favorite book, the call number is listed with the book.

"Hi, I'm Sara Van Lente. I've been working at the library for 13 years. I started part-time, then worked full time for 6 years, and went back to part time after my daughter Lydia was born. Lydia turned four years old at the end of October, and I can't believe how fast that time has flown. At the library, I work the desk, organize some of the adult programming, and am one of the materials purchasers. In my free time, I enjoy watching movies, doing crafts, and playing with my daughter. My favorite genre is Christian fiction (especially prairie romance), but I also enjoy dystopian science fiction. Quite different topics, I know!"
