Editor’s Note: This is the 10th in a series of Q&As with Framingham Public Library staff. The main Framingham Library and the Christa McAuliffe Library branch were physically closed for more than a year due to the coronavirus pandemic, which began in spring 2020. During that time period, a new director and several new staffers were hired. SOURCE thought it would be great to introduce and re-introduce key library staff to the communityand have staff discuss what the library has to offer and their favorite parts of the libraries. This series began in 2021.
