Boca Raton Public Library, FL

I work in the Instructional Services department at the Boca Raton Public Library (BRPL). Prior to joining BRPL, I worked at the Wimberly Library at Florida Atlantic University and taught high school history at a Yeshiva High school (I have a masters in history in addition to the MLIS). I teach information and tech literacy classes for BRPL: access to digital libraries, computer basics, and internet safety and privacy. I am also the discussion group leader for the Security and Privacy Discussion Forum for the SEFLIN S&P Learning Cluster and am a member of the FLA Marketing & Membership committee. One of the things I am most proud of is my award-winning article, “The Mission-Informed Library: Internal Marketing to Improve the Organizational Climate in the Public Library,” (about bullying in the library) published in the Jan/Feb 2019 issue of Public Libraries.
