Hello, I'm Rob.

Ask me about:

"In the mornings, I usually process requests for materials that are sent to us from the Service Center over the Web. Once we open, I answer reference questions and help people with technical and computer issues. I also do a lot of collection maintenance, like getting rid of old and damaged books, and ordering new ones. My job also includes creating teen and adult programming. We usually have video game day for teens every Wednesday and we run various adult programs throughout the year. The latest was a class on tracing your genealogy."

"Our teen programs try to dislodge the idea in kids' minds that the library is boring and totally out of touch with their lives. Every Wednesday after school, we host a regular video gaming program. Guitar Hero and Rock Band are especially popular. I always participate with the kids. I'm just up to the point where I can play at the medium level on Guitar Hero. Last time, I was playing with a 14-year-old who had it on expert level and was playing without even looking at the screen. I have a great job!"

"Compared to other libraries, I've found that Sno-Isle has a much better working environment. The atmosphere here is collegial, friendly. Management is very supportive here. You don't see a lot of politics and conflict among the staff. When you wake up in the morning, you want to come to work."

"This is the best place to work in the world. I'm really, really happy here. I moved 2,500 miles from Indiana to take this job. I left all my friends and family back east. And I have never regretted it. This job is that good. I really enjoy coming into work every day. My coworkers are also my friends."

"I'm currently reading Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens. I love the early Dickens novels, with their vibrant characters and high comedy. This is one of Dickens' best."
