I am the Transitional Counselor for the School Program for Incarcerated Youth at a county jail in Long Island, New York and reside in Brooklyn, NY. I received an MLIS from St. John's University in 2009 via a Laura Bush Scholarship. I have been lucky enough to wear two hats and combine counseling with maintaining a small school library--the library has proved to be an important touchstone for my counseling. I have been blessed with seeing the transformative power of books in people's lives and how library resources empowers a community.
Public libraries face the challenge of providing information and resources about the upcoming election this November but they also engage their communities in civic opportunities and experiences throughout the year.
