Meet the Staff Monday - Leslee

It's Meet the Staff Monday! Today we are introducing Leslee Hamilton. She is our Interlibrary Loan and Genealogy Technician. Leslee has been working here for 17 years and absolutely loves her job. She started loving libraries through helping her grandmother at the Twin Echo school library when she was younger. In 1990, she began a school project about genealogy which she continues working on until this day. When she is not working she often spends her time reading, doing genealogy, or doing counted cross-stitch. Leslee will read anything except for poetry or Shakespeare. She enjoys reading series books the best with the Harry Potter series being one of her favorites. Leslee lives in Collinsville with her mom (Suzanne), sister (Kendra), nephew and niece (Zach and Zoe), and shih tzu (Jasper). Leslee really doesn't enjoy having her photo taken, but she does actually like this one, from twelfth grade! Be sure to ask Leslee if you have any questions about local history or genealogy; she'd be happy to help you.
