Meet Clara, Shadle Youth Librarian

For more than 20 years, Clara Strom has worked her way through and up the Spokane county and city library systems, with the Hillyard branch her most recent home. Now, she’ll be checking out a new role as youth services librarian for the Shadle library. Experiences like reading to 50 kids hanging on her every word will make the transition a welcome one. 

“I just wanted to do what I love,” she says, adding that her new duties will take her out to many more community and neighborhood organizations.

The Hillyard branch has become a community anchor under her leadership, offering crafts on Saturday, hosting scout groups, and services like free resume printing. WorkSource employment counseling is available once a week. 

The meeting room is in constant use, as are the computers. And there’s the vegetable and flower seed catalog available to everyone. 

Need a camera? They’ve got some.

All city library libraries have a wealth of resources thanks to the support of citizens who voted for a library levy in 2013. It’s time to renew the levy, so lease support Measure 1 on ballots due April 25.
