The Columbus Public Library has hired Meg Kaster as its new Youth Services Director. A recent graduate of the UW Madison iSchool, Kaster spent the last few years working in youth services at other local libraries in Sun Prairie, Madison, and Deerfield. Prior to that, she taught English at Deerfield High School. When discussing her career change, Kaster remarks, “My favorite part of teaching was chatting with teens about the books they like, and as a librarian, I get to do that all the time.”
In addition to helping children and teens find the perfect book, Kaster says programming is an area she’s excited to explore: “I’m really eager to continue the amazing programming and community engagement already present at the library, and to bring my creative flair to the mix to create some incredible programs for kids, teens, and families.”
