Rachel Fiore, Adult Services Librarian – Whittier Public Library
Rachel Fiore is one of the Adult Services Librarians for the Whittier Public Library. Rachel is also a co-coordinator for the Veterans Resource Center and has recently added overseeing the local history room to her responsibilities. Before coming to Whittier, she worked as a Business Research Librarian in Downtown, LA for an investment company. This is her second time working with the California Center for the Book. The first time was the Community Conversations with Veterans initiative. My current position allows me to serve two communities that are most important to me – the library and Veteran communities. 

For Book to Action 2021, Whittier Public Library has selected A Fire Story by Brian Fies under the theme of Sustainability.
