What our staff have to say about us...

Paul Klain, Adult Services Librarian

“I love learning new information or building on something I had learned before— I swear I learn something new or different practically every day I work— when library members ask their questions.”

Julie Kanjo, Youth Services Assistant

“I’ve been working part time at the Tinley Park Library for almost 25 years. During that time I’ve developed friendships with many co-workers and patrons. Hosting children’s programs has been a great way for me to connect with our young patrons. I just adore when preschoolers come up to the children’s reference desk and ask if Miss Julie is there. You just can’t beat that!”

Sarah Schroeder, Assistant Director

“The Tinley Park Public Library is my home away from home. In the 5 years that I've worked here, I've had the opportunity to attend conferences and grow professionally in ways that I couldn't have elsewhere. Over the years, my colleagues have become like family, and I can't express how grateful I am to have found such a dedicated, talented group of people to work with.”
