Meet one of our newest team member, Sarah Cheek. Sarah received her bachelor’s at Austin College and her Masters of Library Science at TWU. Sarah has worked or volunteered for the Denison Public Library since she was a teenager. This inspired her to pursue a career in Library Science. In 2006, Sarah was assigned to help with the Youth Services Department to help with Summer Reading Club. “Going into children’s was totally accidental… I was hugely impressed by the work Joyce had done, transforming the children’s program and have been a part, in some capacity since that time.” Sarah is excited to now be a full-time member of the team and will be specifically focusing on the Teens. She will be working with our Teen Advisory Group and the lead facilitator for the 5th-8th graders during the Summer.
Sarah also announced a special program for teens: The Edge of Imagination Station stop-motion workshop. This has limited capacity so teens will need to register for this event. It is open to teens 13-17 or entering 7th-12th grade. Those interested should register at https://edgeofimaginationstation.eventbrite.com
“The library has always been my second home… A library’s goal should be to produce lifelong learners. We strive to produce programs where the children, parents, staff, and volunteers all learn a little something, stretch themselves.”
Be sure to stop by and introduce yourself to Sarah.
