Kathleen (Kathi) Epperson, Clermont College Librarian
I have worked in libraries for over 30 years. I began working part-time at our local library. After a few years, I became a full time library staff member. My children literally grew up in the library! As the children grew older, I went back to school to get my Master’s in Library Science, which would make me an “official” librarian. While I was in library school, I became interested in academic libraries, and worked as an intern at UC’s DAAP Library. The library director was a wonderful mentor to me, and we’re still good friends. I enjoyed guiding students and assisting faculty to find resources. I worked in two other colleges before I came to Clermont College in 2007.
As Reference Librarian, I love to help students find what they need for their projects. I especially like to surprise them by showing them the many resources the library has to offer. I try to be as friendly and helpful as I can, so they remember they can come to the library as a space and if they require assistance, there is a friendly person to help them.
When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my grandchildren, especially when we draw, paint and read! Okay, I might have to include playing Dance Revolution, too!
Something that might surprise you about me is that my brother and I were once protected by Pinkerton guards.
Now for a few of my favorite things:
