Library staff strive to provide the best possible experience for our users - both in-person and online. We understand the importance of building trust with our users and helping them find the resources they need. Over the next several months, we will highlight each of our staff members and the work they do to provide excellent library services to you - our users.
Hi! I am Laure Hershman, and I am the Circulation Supervisor at the Caldwell Library. I have been working at the library for almost a year and half. I recently received my bachelor’s degree in Multi-Disciplinary Studies from BSU with a minor in leadership studies. I really enjoy working with the public and getting to talk with patrons as they are checking out. You may not always see me up front, but I am always happy to help assist with any problems you might have with your library account. Please do not hesitate to ask for me if you have a question.
The library provides a lot of opportunities for staff to go out into the community and showcase the services we provide. I love being able to network with the people and businesses of our community to tell them about all the cool stuff we have going on at the library.
In my free time I enjoy traveling with my husband and 4 children. I also serve on the board of directors for WICAP where I can put my time to good use in helping come up with ways to improve our communities with the services we offer, the partnerships we have, and the new ones we are making
Of course, like my coworkers, I love to read. I enjoy listening to audio books in my car on my commute to and from work. Historical fiction with a little bit of mystery and romance tied in is the genre I prefer. Jane Austen is my favorite author, and Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book. If you are ever looking for a good historical fiction novel to read, I am your person to talk to.
I look forward to seeing you at the library.
