BeronicaWhat I do at the library: You will normally find me helping people at either the second-floor service desk or the children's service desk at the Main Library, or anywhere at our Dole and Maze branches.
How I turn outward: My prerogative at the Oak Park Public Library is to assist our patrons with library material. I am here to locate items and tackle any questions that come up.
My favorite "hidden library gem": The second-floor graphic novel sections! I have never seen such an eclectic variety of comics and manga at any other library! Top-notch.
Something I love about Oak Park: I am forever in debt to Sugar Fixé and Buzz Café. Their endless supply of caffeine has kept me energized and on point to assist people and accomplish my day-to-day goals.
