About Me

My name is Amy Koester, and I am a public librarian. I maintained this blog from 2012-2018.

You can find full, current details on my library presentations, press, and service on my Wordpress site.

I am the Director of Public Services at Skokie Public Library. Before coming to Skokie, I worked as a branch children's librarian with the St. Charles City-County Library District.

I received my MLS from Indiana University Bloomington in May 2011. I am a member of the American Library Association and ALSCMy past association and committee service includes New-to-ALSC Director on the ALSC Board and the 2014 (John) Newbery Award Committee (Flora & Ulysses!).

This blog was dedicated to exploring programs, services, and other topics in youth- and family-focused librarianship. This blog is solely mine, and it does not reflect anyone's opinions but my own.
