Q&A with Library Assistant Jeni Rendahl

Library Assistant, Adult Services, Canyon Country Jo Anne Darcy Library

Q: What are your areas of expertise?
I really enjoy the customer service aspect of working at the Library. I am drawn to digital services and feel very accomplished when I help patrons navigate the various aspects within our eLibrary. It is very rewarding to show folks how to utilize digital platforms such as Libby, Freading, Hoopla and Kanopy. Helping people get the most out of our databases is also a big plus since it helps patrons to broaden their experiences in the Library, often showing them a service they did not know we had. The one aspect of my job that is the most rewarding is creating book displays and interactive signage. Not only do the patrons find them useful and fun, but my co-workers do as well.

Q: What’s your next adventure?
I would like to expand on my digital knowledge and improve my understanding of Excel. I have also been toying with the notion of acquiring a Master of Library and Information Science degree.
