BookSpring staff is eager to serve! As we pivot our programs to better serve families in our community, we will feature staff weekly on our blog. This week the spotlight is on Clare Bresnan! She joined the BookSpring team August 2018 as the Book and Supply Manager. Clare spent twenty-five years as a Children’s Librarian, both in Texas and Europe. She remains devoted to curating great quality books for children and families in Central Texas.
What is your job at BookSpring?
I am the Books and Supply Manager, I make the books arrive at our office and make sure they go where they need to go… with Lola’s help (the puppet).
What do you like about your job at BookSpring?
I like the books and get excited thinking about the kids who will read them. I do my best to make sure that happens.
How has your job at BookSpring changed with the outbreak of Covid-19?
The magic wand I use to get the books ready is not working properly, so I have to come up with a new way to get these books to the kids! Lola is the only one helping me now, and she gets lonely and sad because she misses her friends. This makes our job go slower, but that’s ok.
What would you like to tell the BookSpring audience?
We are very smart people and we will think of a way to get fun books to you.
