The staff of the Tyler Public Library are organized in various divisions dedicated to providing library and information service to the community.
City Librarian - Mary Vernau
Access Services - Connie Greer, Librarian
This division encompasses reference and reader's advisory services, interlibrary loan, and local history and genealogy. They provide answers and information on a wide variety of subjects, help trace your family history, borrow books from other libraries, and are responsible for assisting customers in finding their next good book to read. The information desk can also demonstrate the use of our electronic resources, getting you started with eBooks and eAudio, Rocket Language Learning, and the many databases we have available for your use. The Access Services Division develops programming for our adult patrons.
Circulation Services - Ashley Taylor, Circulation Supervisor
This division is responsible for checking books, DVDs and other materials out to our customers, renewing them upon request, and checking them in again when they are returned. They issue library cards to new patrons and renew those that have expired. They replace items on the shelves when they have been returned and keep the shelves in order. Circulation Services is also responsible for assigning computers to Internet users.
Resource Services - Pauline Eng, Librarian
This division is responsible for choosing and ordering items for the library and making them ready to go on the shelves. They create entries in our online catalog for each item and assign a call number, so that they may be easily found on the shelves. Resource Services makes it possible to find the item you're looking for!
Youth Services - Linda Gray, Librarian
This division is responsible for all services to our younger customers. They choose materials and provide programming for children and teens. Youth services promotes early literacy initiatives and partners with others in the community to reach those children who cannot make it to the library.
