About Amy, Holds & Resource Sharing Assistant
Amy started at the library in 1980 as a Circulation Page. She often tells people she was just 9 years old at the time. Over the years she has held many different positions in most departments at the Library. Her greatest satisfaction comes from playing a role in connecting customers with the materials they are looking for.
She has a husband and two grown children. Some of the activities she enjoys in her free time are: mountain biking, camping, snowmobiling and snowshoeing. She spends many hours volunteering for the Eau Claire County Fair, and building and maintaining the trails that she snowmobiles, mountain bikes and snowshoes on. Her mottos are: “Never say never” and “No regrets”.

Now that I am merely weeks away from winter break at school, I want nothing more than to settle under a throw blanket, sip some hot chocolate, and crack open a good book. Scratch that. I want to crank up the Christmas music, bake cookies, and wrap gifts. And then I’ll resign to the couch […]

With pumpkin patches, apple orchards, and colorful leaves, there is much to do and see during this final season before the cold and snow strikes again. One site that […]
If the above picture looks familiar, you may recall having seen this furry friend in the library’s 2015 Friends of the Library Pet Calendar from this past January. Lily was photographed for the calendar in August 2014. This event also marked her first trip to the library! This spunky sweetheart of a rabbit happens to […]
As a student, I often look forward to the end of any semester- a small break from required reading, but a break, nonetheless, for recreational reading. If you’re like me and you do not have a never-ending TBR (to-be-read) pile of books, there are plenty of online services that can help you find your next […]
