Curriculum Vitae

2019 Library goals.

Can’t decide between #Lifeliteracies and #CommunityLoungeroom.

I am interested in everything library. Making libraries everything that our users want us to be. Libraries in the community; library boxen; digital libraries; reading (in any format); making sure all library resources are available to all library users – regardless of format.


Over twenty years experience in libraries with extensive experience in library systems. Technical skills, planning, time management, organising and communicating, together with an eye for detail and strong customer service orientation, are the key skills offered to an employer who needs a flexible hands-on librarian with a ‘can do’ attitude.
