We’d like to take a moment to welcome the newest additions to the Clinton-Essex-Franklin Library System crew. First off, Rebecca Klein has joined as a library clerk in the Technical Services Department. Rebecca is a SUNY Plattsburgh history department alumna and aspiring archival librarian. When she isn’t reading about lesbian history or doing genealogical research, you can find her knitting, watching bad sci-fi movies with her fiancée, or playing with her cat Marceline. She’s been making quick work of dealing with interlibrary loans and rotating collections, helping us provide fresh titles to patrons in every corner of the three counties. And even more recently, Justin VanCour has also joined the team as an accounting clerk in the Administration Department. He comes to us with more than a decade of experience working in insurance and account clerk positions with Clinton County. Justin’s passions away from the office include music, writing, and Star Wars. He loves doing things with his family, including coaching his kids in youth sports. He’s been learning all about the ins and outs of the financial side of the Library System and member libraries. We’re so glad to have both Rebecca and Justin join and look forward to working with them to provide service to libraries and their patrons.[CLICK TO READ MORE]
