Jess Wanostrocht - CSA, Paignton Library
Jess says: I have the best job! Who else can say that they come to work as an alien one week and a Roman Centurion the next? The great thing about my job is that every day is different. Our staff have been very welcoming of me during my first year and their dedication to their work is amazing. This really shows in their interactions with customers and in the way that they constantly come up with events to inspire people to love their libraries. All four of our Torbay libraries have an unique atmosphere but the one thing that is constant amongst all of them is that they are welcoming and inclusive spaces. So come in and have a chat with us, here you can find out the information you need or if you’d like a book recommended we’d be happy to help.
