My name is Sharon Forinash, and I am pleased to be the new Youth Services Librarian at the Lochwood Branch Library. I would like to take just a few minutes to share a little bit about myself. Although I was born in Bourne, Massachusetts and grew up in a military family, I consider myself a Texan.
Here at Lochwood, I have a desire to increase programming and to learn more about the Lochwood community. Since my arrival, I have enjoyed presenting weekly preschool storytimes and added a weekly Baby Bounce storytime. I am planning to offer a STEM program for elementary students once a month and started that in February with a fun catapult program.
Crafts appeal to me, and that was what prompted me to offer a gift wrapping program in December, and a paper snowflake program and a poster making program in January. We also offered a Valentine’s crafts for kids program in February. In the future, I want to offer a variety of children’s programs, family programs, and adult programs.
