If you have been in the Lodewick Children\u2019s Library in the last few weeks, you may have noticed a new face at the desk and facilitating some programs. Shay Glass, our new children\u2019s librarian, is originally from Georgia, but moved to Boston to get his master\u2019s degrees in library science and children\u2019s literature at Simmons College. After several years working at libraries in the mountains of North Carolina and in Portland, Ore., he is excited to be back in New England and settled in one place. In addition to providing reference assistance and reading recommendations, Shay will be purchasing materials for the juvenile fiction (chapter book) collection and bringing his experience and fresh ideas to many of our programs, especially STEAM activities such as Lego Challenge, robotics, Maker Crafts, and more. Shay fills the position formerly held by Mary Beth Rassulo, who is now assistant director at the Easton Public Library. \u201cI'm thrilled to be here,\u201d Shay said. \u201cSome of my favorite things include reading children\u2019s books and talking about them, so I\u2019d love to hear about all the books you\u2019re reading and how you feel about them!\u201d We invite you to stop by soon and welcome him to Ridgefield. Mary Rindfleisch is assistant director at the Ridgefield Library. She may be reached at 203-438-2282, ext. 11009, or email@example.com.
