What is your favorite thing about serving on the Library Board of Trustees?
I am honored to represent the residents of Naperville by serving on the Library Board. One of my favorite things is having the opportunity to learn more about the library’s programs ,services and staff and being able to share my experiences with residents. It is a privilege.
What is your favorite service that NPL provides?
My favorite service is access to eAudiobooks. I continually share how eAudiobooks are a must when driving distances (have you ever driven to Springfield). I promote the ease of downloading books at the library, the classes offered to learn more about this service, and the great selection of eAudiobooks.
What are you reading now?
I just finished reading/listening to Dark of night by Suzanne Brockmann. I enjoy mysteries and have several eAudiobook mysteries on hold.
