Spotlight on... Lorraine Letcavage

This is the next installment in a series of blog posts to help you get acquainted with some of the people who work in the library.  Today we introduce you to our newest staff member.

What is your name?  Lorraine Letcavage

What is your title?   Administrative Assistant I, Library Services

What kinds of things are you responsible for in the library?  I report to the Director of Library Services, so my assignments vary daily. I enjoy the variety. I assist in budget preparation, statistical reports and data collection for state surveys, research activities, and many operational procedures within the library. Currently, I am part of a team that is redesigning the library website and its contents.

How did you come to work in the library?  Since I worked in education previously and really enjoyed it, I looked at available positions with schools and applied here because I really liked the Bloomsburg area. Luckily, I was hired at the Andruss library this past January. I like to learn and love to read, so the library position seemed well-suited for me. I am the newest staff member on board.

What do you enjoy most about your job?  I like the opportunities to learn new things, to participate in activities, and apply what I know to new projects. Everyone has been really nice and helpful since I started, and that’s a plus on any job.

What else do you want people to know about you?  I used to teach GED and ESL classes to adult learners. It was very rewarding, as most students had very interesting life stories and challenges to overcome. They were very grateful to have a second chance at something many take for granted. It was a pleasure to witness their success and actually make a difference in their lives.
Personally, I love the outdoors, nature and animals. I’m also interested in the entertainment world and photography.
