photo of Project SET participantIntroducing Elizabeth McGovern! She is the Head of Children’s Services at Westwood Public Library. Recently we had a chance to ask Elizabeth what attracted her to Project SET.

“I have reached a point in my career where I want to grow professionally and engage thoughtfully with the larger community of my peers, in the library field. I wanted to be able to share ideas and inspire fellow librarians to take chances, think outside the box, and look for solutions. Project SET has given me the opportunity to enhance my leadership skills when instructing and sharing knowledge to staff; as well to hone my ability to think about emerging trends and how they relate to library culture. I hope to be more involved/present in the library field and be able to bring new ideas to life at my library.”
