The LLC is pleased to welcome Ashley Young to our staff. In February, Ashley will be in charge of night reference and circulation duties for the LLC. Previously, Ashley worked for the LLC as a student worker. In addition to her regular duties, she worked on many special projects, including interior renovations, designing the MAP display, and assisting with the library weeding project.
Ashley graduated in December 2014 with a degree in graphic design. She gained valuable experience by working at a local print shop and by pitching design work to local businesses as a part of her CSC course work. Ashley’s long-term goal is to find a job that utilizes her artistic talents. For the time being, she is excited to continue working at the LLC and to assume more responsibilities.
Ashley enjoys reading, and she is a great person to ask for recommendations for great fantasy, sci-fi, mystery, and young adult books. She also enjoys the outdoors, camping, hiking, caving, and relaxing at the lake. One of the reasons she enjoys living in Chadron is the abundance of outdoor activities nearby.
With her years of LLC experience, Ashley is ready to dive in to work. Since she will be taking on new responsibilities, she will receive additional training from the librarians on how best to use the library’s resources and services. In addition, Ashley will take an online basic skills reference course offered by the Nebraska Library Commission this spring.
