Leslie Hannahy is a trained library technician and one of the newest members of the CEU library she started her job the end of September.

Hannahy is from the San Francisco Bay area and moved to Carbon County with her husband of 40 years to escape the urban sprall of California. She earned her library technician certification at Foothill Community College in Los Altos Hills, Calif.

Hannahy prefers the CEU library to the city library for many reasons. Mainly, she enjoys that many of the books at the CEU library focus on academics compared to "fun reading" at the city library. Hannahy keeps track of the periodicals in the library. She keeps them organized, sends and receives orders. She also tries to find out what happens if any of them are not placed in the right section.

The library receives anything from ESPN to Time and Newsweek. They subscribe to journals on nursing, latitude and engineering. Hannahy describes newspapers that come in different languages. She would appreciate if anyone could translate these newspapers so they can be put out for the public to read. She also said that if there are any magazines that students would like made available in the library to let her know and the magazine will be considered in next year's budget.

Besides working in the libarey, Hannahy chairs the home arts division of the Carbon County Fair. She is in charge of organizing the homemade items that Carbon County residents make to be judged.
