Meet Your Library Staff

There are lots of new faces in the Children’s and Teen’s Area at the Frankfort Community Public Library, so now it is time to meet your library staff. Be sure to drop by the library and tell our talented educators hello!

Miss Erin: Tweens and Teens

Hi! I’m Erin. I work for in the Teen Area and at the Rossville Library as well. I was a fifth grade teacher for six years before deciding to work for the library. Now, I am working on getting my Masters of Library and Information Science at IUPUI. I like to read a little bit of everything by favorite genres are science fiction and thrillers/mysteries. When I am not reading, I like to play piano and dye my hair!

Ms. Jessica: Tweens and Teens

Hello, I’m Jessica and I work in as the Teen Area Assistant. I’ve lived in Frankfort most of my life and graduated from the Frankfort High School. When I was little, I would walk to the library and spend much time here growing up. There was a little while when I didn’t have time to visit, but I am so happy to be back! Earlier this year I started working on a little herb garden and it seems to be doing really well. I can’t wait to see how much I can harvest! I love reading YA and Manga while drinking tea with my dog. I really like Alice Osman, Rin Chupeco, Natasha Brown, and Aiden Thomas.

Miss Kortney: Outreach and Family Movie Night

Hi, I am Kortney, the youth services assistant at the Frankfort Community Public Library. I grew up in Clinton County in the town of Kirklin! Ever since I was a kid, the library was always somewhere my friends and I would spend hot summer days. I loved reading and participating in different programs that the library has to offer. I am eager to start developing programs of my own at the Frankfort Library. I am passionate about working with youth and making a difference in the community, being outdoors, reading, and hanging out with my dog Bella. Some of my favorite authors are Mo Willems, Lucy Maude Montgomery, Jenny Han, and Colleen Hoover. A fun fact about is that I had two books I could never put down as a child: Jasmine and Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Miz Liz: School Age

Hi, I’m Liz aka Mz. Liz. I’m the youth services assistant leading school age programs and bringing them to Michigan Road, Mulberry and Rossville branches. Like many book lovers I attained a Bachelor’s Degree in English. I’ve come to the children’s department with nearly 20 years of experience as an elementary school librarian and technology instructor. The library has always owned a special place in my heart. Some of my first ventures of independence as a fourth grader were riding my bike to the library and filling its basket with books. As a parent, I enjoyed bringing my daughters and their friends to library programs and soaking up summer reading fun. As a new grandparent, I look forward to reading a good portion of my grandson’s 1000 books before Kindergarten to him. As a professional in the library, my greatest satisfaction comes from seeing the light of book love, learning, and creativity reflected in a patron’s eyes. So, if you see me in the children’s department, ask me for help, it will make my day.

Mr. Matthew: Early Literacy

Hell, I am Matthew, a youth services assistant at the Frankfort Community Public Library. I grew up in Arizona, moving to Indiana in the middle of high school. I live right here in Frankfort. I grew up walking to the library as a kid to pick out my favorite books and play on the computer. Now here I am, years later, still walking to the library. I am currently studying education at Ivy Tech with an offer to transfer to IUPUI for social studies education. My Mom was a preschool teacher for nearly 30 years and no owns her own preschool, so have I have always had a passion for working with kids. I have plans to finish college and teach high school history and geography and lend my free time volunteering at the library. When I am not doing school, I enjoy reading to my son, traveling with my family, and playing video games. Some of my favorite authors are Rick Riordan, Marie Lu, and Conelia Funke. I also love Emily Rodda because her book series Deltora Quest really sparked my imagination as a kid, and to this day, I enjoy going back and reading or waking the anime adaptation.
