Spotlight on Student Workers: Kristen Thomas

Graduation seemed far-off when Kristen Thomas began working in the Weinberg Memorial Library’s Media Resources Department 3 ½ years ago, but now it’s right around the corner, and the Library would like to recognize Kristen’s hard work and commitment.

Kristen, a Moosic native and Counseling and Human Services major, has worked year-round in the Library and has lent her organizational and creative skills to many projects such as an inventory of EdLab books and Media materials, and preparing for last year’s Media Resources’ Open House. She is an enthusiastic worker whose favorite perks of the job are talking with faculty outside of the classroom and previewing the latest films.

Outside of her studies, Kristen has been a member of Urban Beats Crew, and completed two internships in school counseling and has two additional part-time jobs! Her favorite book and movie are “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.”

Kristen feels that the Library staff is very helpful and her advice for students is to ask a librarian when they need help because the librarian will guide them in the right direction. She advises students to utilize the online resources too.

When her studies are completed, Kristen plans to work as a school counselor.

Thank you, Kristen, and best wishes for the future!
