A love of reading and helping people is a perfect combination for new library services team leader Kylie Bradley.
The born and bred local first became involved with the library as an after-school student while she was at the Wairoa College.
From school, Miss Bradley spent five years at the Wairoa i-Site before being drawn back to the library.
The self-confessed book worm says she loves the public side of the role and helping people.
“The library is engaged on so many levels, and it’s not just about books.
“The technology side and the computers we have available for public use means our role is very interactive.
“There are also different reading programmes, like the adult one at the moment which has had a high uptake.
Readers join the programme and agree to read and rate three books from eight different genres.
“For some participants, this means reading books which are out of their comfort zone and those involved have been really enjoying it, and it’s certainly creating a lot of conversations.”
Miss Bradley said she is excited about her new challenge and intends to further her studies within the library field.
She is also one of four Council staff members who has been selected for a SOLGM (New Zealand Society of Local Government Managers) leadership course.
Wairoa District Council chief executive Steven May said the Council and community are very fortunate to have a person like Kylie who has such a passion and commitment for her role.
