The North Adams Public Library is pleased to announce the appointment of Sara Russell-Scholl as the new youth services librarian. In addition to serving as the Thursday night and Saturday youth services assistant for three years, Russell-Scholl is the familiar face of toddler story times on Tuesdays. “Sara rose to the very top of eighteen potential candidates based on her professional experience at the Manice Education Center in Florida, Massachusetts and her native ability to connect with children of all ages,” said Library Director, Mindy Hackner. Russell-Scholl is beginning her duties at the busiest time of year in the youth services calendar. Her job begins on June 20, the very first day of summer reading sign-ups. Fortunately, staff members Kim DiLego and Nancy Ritter have been preparing the groundwork to help ease her workload. Sara lives on Florida Mountain with her husband Matt and three young children ages ten to four. We are pleased to welcome Sara to our small but powerful staff and hope you stop in to make her welcome.
