Please join us in welcoming Veronica Casanova to the California Center for the Book Program Development Group. We are so excited to have her join our team. Thank you also to all 19 applicants for your interest in community engagement and programming for adults and intergenerational groups. This is what California libraries are about! Learn more about Veronica below.
Veronica Casanova works as a Librarian IV for the Tulare County Library System’s Exeter Branch Library, her childhood library. Veronica’s passion for outreach to the Spanish-speaking community drove her to apply and obtain the California Humanities Library Innovation Lab (LIL) Grant. Through the California State Library’s Developing MakerSpaces in Libraries throughout California Grant, she created MakerSpace programming for her community to create, play and learn. Thanks to the California State Library, the small rural community of Exeter can experiment with robotics, 3D printing and other STEAM programming. Currently, Veronica serves as the Vice President of REFORMA del Valle Central, member of the ALA’s RUSA Tech Show Case Committee and project advisor for ALA’s STAR Net STEAM Equity Project. In her free time, she enjoys jogging, yoga, binging Netflix shows, reading (of course!) and spending time with family.
