I came to BSU most recently from two part-time gigs at Albertson College's N. L. Terteling Library and Ada Community Library's Star Branch. Before that I worked at the University of Arizona Libraries in Tucson, where I earned my MA in information science. In my pre-librarian life, I earned an MA in English (specifically, Literature & Environment) at the University of Nevada, Reno, and worked for four years as an editor, first for Orion magazine, then for a couple other places.
I've been living in Boise for just eight months now, and have to say that this is the best town I've ever inhabited. Great downtown, great parks, and oh the Greenbelt. Love it. I'm a dog lover and a runner, so the 'belt is treating us well. Also love hiking, and a few more domestic hobbies like gardening and knitting. Recently became a 24 addict, and have been a Lost addict for a while.
That's all I've got. Thanks for reading, and don't hesitate to drop a line if you ever need anything! I'm at email@example.com or 426-1621.
West Campus Library will be open Monday thru Friday 8:30 to 5:00 and also closed Saturdays and Sundays.
Additional operating hours for the rest of the Fall semester can be found at the Library's Hours page.
