Spotlight on Student Workers: Brooke Pallien

A love of books drew senior student worker, Brooke Pallien to apply for a work-study position within the Library.  Now, as she steadily migrates toward graduation this May with a Bachelor of Arts in English, the Library Dean’s Office would like to take a moment to recognize Brooke’s hard work and dedication to our office over the last three years.

Brooke, a native of Scranton, had no trouble finding her way around campus when she began her studies in the Fall of 2011.  After spending her first year of employment at the Circulation Desk, she has been employed in the Dean’s office since 2012.  Because she “loves working where the books live”, she has not shied away from tasks throughout the building.  During the past several years, Brooke demonstrated not only a great degree of professionalism but also exemplary care and attention for detail in her work.  She is a tremendous asset to our office.  In all of her endeavors, Brooke demonstrates the highest quality efforts, problem solving prowess, strong creativity, and an excellent understanding of the needs of the office.  She strives to make sure things are correct the first time.

She would encourage other students to ask questions while in the Library; there are so many useful resources that they may not even know about.  Brooke enjoys tasting her latest batch of culinary creations when she’s not at school.  Her favorite class is Creative Nonfiction Writing with Dr. Joseph Kraus and her favorite book is THE PARIS WIFE.  One fun fact about Brooke is that she’s getting married this summer!  When the festivities of her summer nuptials settle down, she hopes to find work in editing or as a technical writer.

It will be difficult to replace her, but we wish Brooke the absolute best as she prepares to turn the page and begin the next chapter of her story!
