More about Sarah
Prior to becoming a librarian I worked in a number of different positions doing web UI design and programming as well as graphic design. In my free time I'm very craft minded, pursuing knitting, quilting, and forever trying to comprehend crochet. As the child of three generations of Engineers, I have an appreciation for the profession and the types of resources required for success.
