Meet a Librarian

Hi, my name is Marie and I have been in libraries most of my working life and here in the  Shoalhaven for over 22 years. I have loved every minute of it!

I am the Inter Library Loans/Overdues Officer so I assist our members to acquire books and material not held in our catalogue . I liaise with other Public, State and University Libraries within Australia and New Zealand to make this happen.

Over the years I have helped the local community with their various enquires, whether they be general information or more technological since the rise in personal hand held devices. I also oversee the Overdues process and liaise with our members regarding these issues.

 I also participate in children’s activities like Readers Theatre, Storytime and Christmas activities.

Being a librarian and surrounded by wonderful books I am an avid reader (in all formats - books, eBooks and eAudio which are great for travelling). My favourite genre is historical/ Australian outback fiction and current biographies.

My personal interests away from the library include walking, creative knitting, histories of places and people, playing with my grandchildren and socialising with friends.
