Employee Spotlight: Lesly Burke

Posted on July 2, 2021

Lesly Burke, Outreach Librarian

Now that more and more people are coming back into the library, you might have noticed a new face amongst the staff! Lesly Burke started working here last fall, and is our new Community Outreach Librarian. Lesly is our first bilingual employee, and she can speak Spanish as fluently as she can speak English. Her job is to help reach out into the community and connect you with the library. She’s also focusing on helping us grow our Spanish book collection and our language learning collection.

She was born in Los Angeles, but raised right here in Green Forest. She loves coffee, books, and exploring. She’s always loved reading and helping others. If you haven’t stopped by to meet her yet, come by and let us know what kind of things you want or need from the library. How can we help you?
