Kelly’s Bio

I joined Robin as Reference and Instruction Librarian at K in 2018. I’m originally from a small town in Indiana and have lived all over (Tokyo, NYC, Cincinnati!) before finally finding my forever home in Kalamazoo. My Master’s in Library Science comes from Queens College. I love working with students at all stages of the research process—even citation! When not at work I can usually be found at my boys sporting/musical/theatrical events or on my couch with a cup of tea and my ancient kitty curled on my lap.

Angela’s Bio

I’ve been one of the weekend circulation assistants since 2019. I earned my MLIS from Wayne State University and my BA in History from Aquinas College. I’m more than happy to help with any of your research quandaries, but if you’re in particular need of citation assistance, I’ve got your back. Outside of the library my interests include: walking, animal welfare, genealogy, Roman history, and comedy specials.
