While the University of Cincinnati’s 25th General Hospital was departing for the World War II European Theater of Operations in the early 1940’s, Germany had already invaded Belgium and had secured a small, Belgian military airbase in the village of Brustem. Brustem remains today as a part of the Sint Truiden community (also known in French as Saint-Trond) and exists only a handful of miles North-West of the Belgian Caserne buildings in Tongres which were occupied by the University of Cincinnati 25th General Hospital beginning in 1945.

Get to Know the Clermont College Library Staff: Natalie Winland

Natalie Winland, Clermont College Library‘s Public Services Manager

IMG_0143-flat-120

I have always been interested in libraries. Beginning in 1988, my freshman year, I was a library aid in high school for 4 years. In February 1992, I started with the Clermont County Public Library at the Williamsburg Branch as a page. I was promoted to the full time position of library assistant from 1993-1996 while at the Goshen Branch. During this time, I attended night classes at Clermont College. From 1996-1998, I went to Crown College in Tennessee to finish my Bachelor’s degree where I worked as a library student assistant . I returned to Ohio, in December 1999, and worked at the Milford Branch Library as a library assistant. I was promoted to Youth Services Specialist and transferred to the Owensville Branch in 2001. I left that position to come to Clermont College Library as the Public Services Manager, May 2011. I have over 23 years of professional library service.

One important aspect of my job is giving great customer service. I want to be approachable, and I feel it is my job to listen. I always give the kind of service that I want to receive which includes a friendly greeting and smile.

When I’m not at work I love to read and shop. I am happiest when I find a bargain.

You might be surprised that I love anime and graphic novels. At least once a year my daughter and I attend an anime convention. The last one we attended was Ramencon 2015 in Merrillville, IN.

A few of my favorite things:

Favorite book: Treasures of Darkness by Pastor Clarence Sexton

Music: Classical

Movie: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

TV Show: Beauty and Beast with Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton

 

We’re here to help!

Public Services Manager

Darth Vader, WTFeth, Man?

The Empire Striketh BackA brief moment ago, in a galaxy that is our own, Shakespeare has been reimagined. It is a time of artistic freedom and a lack of brand new ideas. Authors left and right are taking popular works and translating them into Shakespeare’s style. The remaining few are taking Shakespeare’s works and translating them into modern texts, literally. Star Wars is an empire that has befallen this fate. Iambic pentameter maketh Yoda sound yet wiser, and Han Solo a fairer knave. Thank thee Maker! Forsooth, never before have two groups with such extreme cult followings come together to create a new work! Shakespeare lovers and Star Wars fans alike can now come together. Continue reading
