December 2014: Tara Matherly
Tara is a senior at Riverheads High School and has been at the Augusta County Library since September as part of the Mentorship Program at her school. Tara is interested in editing and publishing so she chose the library as her place to learn and work. While she was here, Tara took part in all aspects of the library including pulling reserve books, answering reference questions, checking books out to patrons, checking in and shelving materials, and attending meetings. She visited other libraries and library stations. The staff enjoyed getting to know her and appreciated the help she provided.
Tara is active at her school as a cheerleader and also enjoys reading. Some of her favorite authors are Simone Elkeles and Stephanie Meyer. Tara will be graduating this May and plans to attend James Madison University and is considering a career as a librarian. She said that she enjoyed her time at the library and one of the most important things she learned was the routine of going to work every day.
