Speaker bio:
Janie Hermann (@janieh on twitter), in her role as Public Programming Librarian at the Princeton Public Library, is driven by both passion and boundless dedication to ensure that the public programs offered at the library not only meet but exceed the expectations of the Princeton Community. Each year she oversees about 1,600 public programs put together by the amazing team she considers privileged to work with. Her work at the library allows her to interact with a wide variety of local groups and organizations and she truly loves the connections she is able to make each day as a result. As a teacher, librarian, wife and mother, Janie has learned that the “devil is in the details” and you have to leave room for some spontaneous actions. Janie’s spare time is spent at hockey rinks cheering on her son or her beloved Toronto Maple Leafs when they are nearby.
