Just One Item - Theresa

We have challenged every member of our staff to pick just one item to recommend to our patrons. It's easy to rattle off a list of favorites but to single out and stand by just one suggestion requires discipline and commitment. This succinct and straightforward approach will not only provide passionate suggestions but will offer a tailored window to learning a little bit about each staff member's unique personality and tastes.

Theresa is the Head of Circulation at the library and can usually be found at the front desk, aptly handling whatever the day brings. In another inspiring tale of upward mobility, Theresa started at the library ten years ago as a part-time clerk and worked her way up to her current position as a supervisor. Theresa is generally one of the busiest bodies in the building but always has time for a staff member in need or the patrons who universally love and adore her. 

Theresa's one item is Astronomy magazine. Her passion for astronomy is encapsulated by this quote from Plato - "Astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another".
