GREENSBORO – Greensboro Free Library Director Paula Davidson and the library trustees will host a drop-in open house on Thursday, June 13, from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., to offer patrons a chance to say farewell to Assistant Librarian Mackenna Lapierre, and to meet the new Assistant, Bianca Caputo.  Davidson writes, “For the past four years, including the uncommon COVID-19 times, Lapierre has been the cheerful professional handling our interlibrary loan system (with over 500 item requests each year), the creative force behind our flyers and book displays, and a reliable member of our staff team, taking on any new task with aplomb.  We’re excited for her to begin new adventures in North Carolina, but will certainly miss her here!”

Lapierre is currently training her replacement, Bianca Caputo, who brings extensive customer service experience but is new to library work.  Caputo lives in Walden and homesteads with her family, raising sheep, meat birds and a large garden. She is passionate about libraries, knitting and fiber arts, and local food systems. As the new assistant librarian, she will work together with the library director, Youth Librarian Emily Purdy and a dedicated group of volunteers and trustees preparing for another summer of programs and visitors from near and far in Greensboro.
