Camille Peters

Oakland Public Library, CA

Born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, Camille Peters has fond memories of visiting her local public libraries, especially the many serendipitous discoveries she made as a child. She believes this is one of the vital functions of public libraries: they give people the opportunity to browse and discover freely, in an environment free of profit motives, where their privacy and the security of their data can be maintained. She earned her MLIS from San Jose State University in 2016. At OPL, she first worked as a music librarian before becoming the e-resources librarian earlier this year. She lives in Oakland with her partner, their two toddlers, and three cats.
