I am pleased to introduce Emily Witkowski as the new TLA Book Review Editor.
Many thanks to Charlotte Cubbage for her fine work as editor. Charlotte will help with the transition which should be completed by early summer. The Book Review Editor works with the review writers to produce approximately 4-6 reviews which will be published to the website and then included in each issue of Broadside Digest.
Emily currently works as a Children’s Librarian in Maplewood, NJ. Her involvement with TLA began as she was completing her Masters in Library and Information Science at Rutgers University, when she volunteered for the joint conference between TLA and SIBMAS. With a B.A. in English and Interactive Multimedia, she expressed interest in interdisciplinary studies early on, and used that interest to begin working with makerspaces in libraries. After working as the Makercoach at the Piscataway Public Library’s Summer of Make program, and interning with the Science and Engineering Library of Columbia University, she is now looking for ways to further develop makerspace programming, particularly for early youth.
