Monique Brown joins the Witherle Memorial Library staff as Children’s Services Assistant. She replaces Drew Smith, who left in August to begin her teaching career. Monique has been volunteering regularly for three years primarily in adult services, focusing on the book collection and interlibrary loan delivery. In 2022, her duties expanded to providing coverage in the Children’s Room and helping with library events.
“Monique brings familiarity with both the library and the community of Castine. She’s been great with the kids. We’re fortunate she is officially joining the staff”, said Library Director Nick Berry.
Monique is a trained teacher, having taught Kindergarten and first grade in Connecticut for many years. As a lifelong summer and now year-round Castine resident, she is familiar with many people in the community. She will host Saturday morning Storytime which begins at 10:30 am.
