The Newark Public Library will soon offer more adult programming and services for the Newark community thanks to the new addition to their staff, Adult Services Librarian, Laura Lintz.
The Adult Services Librarian is a new position at Newark Public Library, but according to Library Director, Shawn McConnell, it is a much-needed one.
“Our services and programming are outstanding for youth because of we have an excellent Youth Services Librarian, Krystina Hardter, along with her support staff, dedicated to organizing such programming,” said McConnell. “Until now we lacked a librarian dedicated to adult programming and could not offer adults an equivalent amount of programs.”
McConnell expects the programming for adults to increase at Newark Public Library over the next year. He also expects the amount of one-on-one technology and research help to improve with the addition of Laura to the Newark Public Library staff.
“With Christmas comes the new gadgets, and now we have another staff person who can help patrons with their new tech-toys,” said McConnell. “We are fortunate to have Laura Lintz as our new Adult Services Librarian, but especially at this time of year.”
A Rochester native, Laura recently moved back to the area from Boston with her husband and new baby girl. In her most recent position, Laura managed a small branch library in Arlington, MA and worked with grown-ups and children alike and developed a love for technology, unique library collections, and library programming.
Laura said, “I am happy to be back in Upstate New York and especially excited to be a part of the Newark Library in this exciting new position.”
