Recommendations

“While working as the children’s librarian in Belfair, Larissa seemed to have as much fun as the kids and families she planned programs for. She’s not only an accomplished library professional, her technical skills were exceptional and she earned the respect of her peers almost overnight. At different times she filled in as the building manager, leading staff and handling difficult situations as they arose. Whether it’s as a librarian or in a technical or management capacity, Larissa has the energy and intelligence to excel.”

Jeffrey Kleingartner, Communications Manager at Timberland Regional Library

“I enthusiastically recommend her as a wonderful colleague, industrious worker, and a very smart and insightful person. She possesses a great curiosity about life and learning that makes her a delight to be around. We have worked on projects together ranging from storytimes and puppet shows to complex documentation of policies and procedures. Her strengths include: a refreshing sense of humor and perspective; a wide ranging knowledge of libraries and literature; gifted artistic abilities; and a great grasp of new technologies and how to improve library services with those technologies.”
