Kim Wroblewski is an English literature major with minors in Spanish and history. Kim is from Trempealeau, Wisconsin, and she has worked at the library for three summers as well as this school year. As a student, she likes how the library is a relaxing and comfortable place to study. As a student worker, she likes helping patrons with all different types of questions and also likes that there is always something to do. She especially likes seeing where in the world she is sending an interlibrary loan to.
For Kim, the most interesting moment she experienced was when the library flooded during the summer of 2010. She said it happened all of a sudden, and it was quite a shock to see the water pouring into the library. She then spent part of the summer relocating and drying off books and other library materials so they would not get permanent water damage.
Liz Bass, one of Kim’s supervisors, said: “Kim is one of our most experienced and dedicated student workers and her presence will surely be missed once she graduates. She actually helped train me on the library’s front desk duties when I started, and I fondly remember her patience and persistence in that endeavor. Since then, I have come to rely on Kim’s keen judgment and superior work ethic in accomplishing some of our more challenging projects. She has truly been an asset to the library and a pleasure to work with.”
After graduation, Kim plans to go to graduate school to obtain a Master of Library Science degree. She’s been accepted into four programs, and we know that whichever one she chooses, she’ll be successful.
Thanks, Kim, for all your hard work and your exemplary commitment to excellent library service. We’ll miss you but wish you the best for a bright future!
