Candidate Profile: Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) Rep
Hilary Evart, Lake Oswego Public Library
I am a relatively new, and very happy, children’s librarian currently working in a permanent part-time position. I am also the administrator of a philanthropic foundation in Portland where I organize, manage, and assist both non-profit applicants and the foundation Trustees in the funding of charitable work. My previous career was with Guide Dogs for the Blind, where I trained scores of dogs and taught hundreds of people with vision impairments in partnering together as travel and life companions. My final role there was as Manager of Client Education. Some traits I claim are enthusiasm, reliability, and honesty. I’m a mom of two grown kids, a lifetime library user, and ready to draw upon my varied experiences and skills if chosen as your CSLP representative.
I’d like to help optimize the CSLP resources that are intended to make summer reading programs both easier and richer for librarians. My main goal would be to represent accurately the full range of Oregon libraries in articulating requests, giving feedback, asking questions and conveying answers to and from the national organization- basically acting as a conduit with a voice. The hope is that my tendency to engage and be curious would be useful, and also that my colleagues would ultimately trust me to speak for them.
If you could be any children's book character, what character would you be?
