This week's employee spotlight is on Haley. Haley can usually be found working at the teen or upstairs circulation desk. In addition to her regular library duties, Haley also manages the NPL blog (including weekly employee spotlights featuring her co-workers), creates the monthly NPL newsletter, and supplies the weekly staff update to help ensure that we are all kept current on library happenings. I asked Haley a few questions to get to know her a little better.
