Meet Our New Adult Maker Librarian

Dinosaur Cake Topper

Katelyn Attanasio (At-A-Nasio) joins us from Loudoun County, where she worked as a programming and reference librarian.

She has a long history of working with her hands (she 3D printed the topper for her wedding cake), and loves the way Library Maker programs provide free access to technology and materials, allowing adults to easily explore new ideas.

Look for Katelyn at adult Maker programs this fall.
