My name is Susan Jeffery, and I am the Library Director at North Pocono Public Library in Moscow, PA.
- I have been the director of the North Pocono Public Library for 7+ years and during that time, we raised funds and built a beautiful, new 8,400 sq. foot library. Our library has a unique Reading Tree and a 7 foot giraffe named Kevin, our mascot!
- I have worked in several different public libraries and have found that it is important to recognize that every community is different and our job is to meet and exceed the expectations of that community!
- PaLA is an important part of my professional life. It provides opportunities for networking, gathering new information, learning new concepts and gaining new perspectives on librarianship. It helps me to better serve my community.
- I love PA Forward and work to promote it in my library! I serve as the Chair for the Health Literacy Committee. We are working on a grant from the NN/LM MAR, to promote consumer health literacy and to learn more about effective evaluation of programs in libraries!
- My favorite children’s books include: Chicka-Chicka Boom Boom, Caps for Sale, and Julie Edward’s Mandy. I love when I have the opportunity to do our music and movement story time – singing and dancing with the toddlers makes me happy!
