Meet the Staff
Leanne Keyes is our Technology Aide. She holds a BA in Business Administration from Goldey Beacom College and has been a member of the New Castle Public Library since July 2017, following a 20 year career in banking. Banking kept Leanne’s technical skills sharp, but she found the work unfulfilling. A native of New Castle, the library was always a peaceful place for Leanne, and now affords her an avenue to share her skills.
As Technology Aide, Leanne initiated and runs the weekly Coding/Robotics Club for 8-14 year-olds. They meet every Monday at 4. Every Thursday from 3-5, Leanne facilitates the Tech Lab where individuals can familiarize themselves with computer technology and also seek job search support. While on the floor of the library, Leanne can be found close to the computer stations fielding questions. Leanne also works part-time at St. Peter’s School library.
The best part of her job is witnessing those “Ah ha” moments when a student or adult grasps a concept or discovers what they were searching for. The challenge in the ever-changing field of technology is the necessity to remain current. This is a challenge Leanne loves and embraces.
Leanne is the mother of a twelve year old son. She enjoys documentaries and reading. Her favorite genre is Children’s and Young Adult Literature.
Leanne’s quiet nature is a balm in the field of technology that baffles and frustrates so many. Thank you, Leanne, for sharing your talents, while growing the skills of others.
