I’m Amy Filiatreau
Hello Lynn! I’m excited to join the team as Lynn’s new Library Director. I’ve only been here about 6 weeks, but I can tell that Lynn has something special, and I’m glad to be a part of it. I’d love to hear about what YOU need and want from the library.
I want to hear from as many students, faculty and staff as possible, so you can find quality information seamlessly in an environment - in or outside the library building - that helps you study, collaborate, relax, and research. Think outside the books and let us know what the library can do for you.
We’re planning a few changes already that I hope will improve your experience. We are going to overhaul our web site, improve the way you can search our library catalog and other resources, and continue enhancing our e-resources and technology so you can get to what you need from your iPad Mini or other device, on-campus or across the globe. We are hiring a new Outreach Librarian, because I think it’s crucial that we work hard to come to where you are and not wait for you to come to us. We want to improve the library spaces to enhance this beautiful building with better furniture and signage, more events and exhibits, and more.
We’d love your input to make sure we’re doing it right. Add a comment below, shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), call/text me (561-221-7997), or come by anytime. You can reach any of the Lynn librarians through our web site (www.lynn.edu/library) or our mobile app, via chat, text, email, phone, and in person.
She has a hard time relaxing, as you can tell.
I came to Lynn from Xavier University in Cincinnati, OH, and I’m…very gradually…unpacking. I was born and raised in Louisville, KY, but I’ve lived nomadically (Chicago, Santa Fe, Annapolis, Austin, Houston, DC, NYC…) so I’m used to finding my way around a new place. Advice on restaurants, dentists, mechanics, etc. is always welcome!
I live in Delray Beach with my kitten, Cortez – a half-feral stray who adopted me in a taco stand parking lot 10 hours before I was to drive 19 hours down here with a 26’ moving truck and my car on a trailer. I guess I thought moving wasn’t challenging enough – had to add a scared, scrawny kitten to the mix. She’s now a sassy housekitten.
So – if something bugs you about the library, or if there’s something wonderful that you want more of, or if you can’t find something you’re looking for, let us know and we’ll fix it or find it for you. I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone and making Lynn and South Florida my home for a long time to come.
