Say hello to a new librarian

 


Hello, Green River, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Stacey Palmer, and I am the new Young Adult Librarian at the Sweetwater County Library. I am excited to be working with Green River’s middle school and high school students at the library and through programs and events. We are always planning new things, so stop on by, say hi, and tell me what kinds of activities you would like to participate in.

Since I’m new to town, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I just moved here from Los Angeles, but I grew up in Mountain View, where my parents still live. I attended the University of Wyoming where I studied theater and English, then I went on to earn a Master of Fine Arts in Film Production at Boston University. After completing my master’s, I packed everything I owned into my Ford Escort and drove from Boston to Los Angeles. L.A. was quite an adventure. While there, I worked in both the film and video game industry, made some great friends, and got stuck in a lot of traffic. After seven years of living (and driving) in California, I was ready for a change. I also wanted to spend more time with my family, so I started thinking about moving closer to home.

While I was in college and graduate school, I worked at a camp for children with cancer and their siblings. I have always liked kids, but that experience helped me realize how much I enjoyed working with them.

I have also taught high school and volunteered at a children’s hospital in Los Angeles, which further solidified the idea that I should be working with youth. I am very thankful for this new opportunity to be working with young people again, and I look forward to meeting more of Green River’s teens.

The Sweetwater County Library has some great programs that are a lot of fun to be a part of, such as the Winter Reading Program, which is going on until the end of January. It’s open to all ages, so the whole family can get involved.
