I’m Bridget Stone-Allard, I grew up in Underhill and I’ve spent the last 4 years as Children’s Librarian at Essex Free Library engaging kids and families so I didn’t have to say “SHHH!”. I weave my background in Literature and Education into listening carefully to the art and beauty in everyone’s words. All of our stories matter and they are how we create, recreate and remember ourselves and what is important in our world. I start every day with a smile on my face because there is always something new to learn and Im eager to use my life to the benefit and service of others. This is more than a job; I’m thrilled to join the mission of encouraging Georgia Public Library in becoming a thriving community hub of gathering, learning, fun, reflection and growth.
