Library welcomes new head of youth services

Continue reading below

The public library has a new staff member. Amanda Hogue-Lavallee was recently hired as its head of youth services. She replaces Molly Collins, who left at the end of December because she was moving to North Carolina. A resident of Nashua, Hogue-Lavallee has a bachelor’s degree in English literature from the University of Massachusetts Lowell, and a master’s in library science from the University of Rhode Island. She worked most recently for four years as youth librarian for the Hollis Social Library in Hollis, N.H. Before that, she worked for about two years at the Parker Memorial Library in Dracut, first as the assistant to the children’s librarians and then as a teen librarian. Hogue-Lavallee, who began her Burlington job on Jan. 8, said she is enjoying her new position. “I’ve already been doing some programming,” she said. “I really like baby story time. The mothers are just wonderful. It’s been a delight.” She said she is looking forward to the library’s summer reading program for young people, and to expanding programming for children in the age 8 through 11 “tween” years.
