Get to Know the Clermont College Library Staff: Penny McGinnis

Penny McGinnis, Clermont College Library’s Technical Services Manager

IMG_0087-flat-120I’ve worked in libraries for over twenty years. I started out at the Lynchburg branch of the Highland County District Libraries as a children’s librarian. Then I moved to Lynchburg-Clay public school and worked in K-8 and K-5 libraries. In 2006 I started working in technical services at Clermont College Library.

A favorite part of my multi-layered job is sharing library information through social media. The library uses Facebook, Twitter, and our LiBlog in the social media world. I enjoy connecting with our faculty, staff, and students.

When I’m not at work, I write for my own blog where I review books, share devotional thoughts, poetry, photos, and art. My husband and I enjoy sports, hiking, and spending time with our children and grandchildren.

You might be surprised to know that I coached high school volleyball for two years, while my youngest daughter played. That surprised me too!

A few of my favorite things:

Books-the Bible, cozy mysteries & anything set on the east coast, especially Maine

Music-Casting Crowns, Matt Redman, and 70s pop/folk

Movie-You’ve Got Mail & Letters to Julia

TV-NCIS & Gilmore Girls

 

We’re here to help!
