Children's Room Assistant Joan Powers

(Editor's Note: the following information was provided by the Dracut Library.)

This month, we introduce you to our new Children's Room Assistant, Joan Powers.

Joan lives right here in Dracut with her husband, two children and three dogs.  She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work from Valparaiso University, and a Master's Degree in Social Work from Boston University.  For the past few years, she has been working in Child Care, both in centers and privately. 

Some of Joane's favorite authors include John Steinbeck, Orson Scott Card, Anne Rice, and Stephen King. Her favorite children's book is Make Way for Ducklings, though Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie books are a close second.

In her free time, Joane enjoys running, sewing, and being outdoors.  Joan says that she loves children and is thrilled to be a part of the Parker Library staff.

Here at the library, you will find Joan in the Children's Room, where she will be assisting Miss Penny, running programs, and helping both parents and children find just the right book

Please make sure to stop in to the Children's Room and say hello to Joan the next time that you're in!
