Adult Services Librarian, Part-time
On more than one occasion, librarians at the Greenwood Public Library have uttered the words, "I can't believe I get to do this every day." We've also argued over who can fit into a Pete the Cat costume and love to play the super fun game of "Do you think someone in the building will have a rather obscure object in their office?" Spoiler. Someone almost always does.
