Welcome Mandie!

ECRL is pleased to say a belated “Welcome!” to Miranda (Mandie) Krueger as the new Branch Librarian in Aitkin.  Mandie succeeds Katie Pierce, who left us this summer to take a new position in the Twin Cities.

Mandie is currently enrolled in the University of Kentucky‘s School of Information Science to obtain her MLS degree, and hopes to finish within a year and a half.  She graduated from the University of Minnesota – Duluth, with a BA in History and German Studies.

Prior to joining ECRL, Mandie worked for Bemidji Public Library as a Library Assistant, moving up from a substitute assistant to a Library Assistant III, where she worked at the circulation and information desk, and doing collection development, teen/young adult services, and programming.

Mandie started with ECRL on August 21st, and she and her husband Dan recently closed on a house in Aitkin.  She is excited to take on the role of Branch Librarian for the Aitkin community and has already gotten off to a great start, adding storytimes to her list of library talents — all while starting her school semester and settling in to the new house!

If you haven’t yet, please stop by the library to say hello and welcome her to Aitkin.
