Carly Heath - Librarian:
Carly is new to Alexandra Library but worked in Yea before arriving here. Her background is in disability services. An avid reader as a child, Carly did not visit libraries for years after losing a book! She decided to pursue her love of books by retraining and helping change the emphasis of libraries from fines and quietness, to accessibility and patronage. Fines are no longer issued and there are automatic renewals online. New authors are presented and speakers booked well ahead of time. Children are encouraged through Junior Friends of the Library and events are published in the Standard. Borrowbox is another initiative and digital books are incredibly popular.
