Staff Bios — Youth Services

Nancy Krajecki, Youth Services Librarian

Nancy Krajecki joined the library in 2014 as a Youth Services Assistant and in 2018 was promoted to Youth Services Department Head. Nancy has worked in libraries over 20 years in a variety of capacities, most recently as an Assistant Youth Services Department Head before coming to Cedarburg. Nancy holds a liberal arts BA from Calumet College of St. Joseph and an LTA library certification from the College of DuPage. She loves working with children, especially planning story times and family specials, getting to know patrons and their families, and welcoming them into the library. Although mainly a non-fiction reader who is interested in a variety of subjects, she loves ordering and reading picture books and all types of juvenile materials. A good book doesn’t have to be long, some of the most endearing stories and their messages are contained within a 32 page picture book!

Heidi Griffin, Youth Services Assistant

I am excited to join the team in Youth Services at CPL! My family and I are new residents of Cedarburg. We recently moved from Southern Illinois where we lived for thirteen years. I hold a BS in Early Childhood Education from Concordia University Portland. While in Illinois, I worked as a Pre-K 3 & 4 teacher. I enjoy working with young children and sharing my love of learning and books with them. In my free time, I enjoy playing board games with the family, testing new recipes in the kitchen, and reading.

 

Kasey Leaf, Youth Services Assistant

Kasey’s focus as a Youth Services Assistant is on teen programming and literature. Her favorite tasks at work are finding new books to add to the collection and talking to teens about their favorite books, shows and movies. She is currently pursuing her MLIS (Masters in Library Science) at UW-Milwaukee. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, walking her dog, and exploring downtown.

 

 

Katelyn Morrison, Youth Services Assistant

Katelyn once got in trouble for reading during a spelling test in 4th grade. So it was no surprise to friends and family when, years later, she earned her MLIS six years ago. Since then she has worked mostly in youth services in public libraries with some stints in a history museum and a private school. Her favorite thing ever is talking about books with anyone who loves them. At Cedarburg Public Library she will be helping with  S.T.E.A.M. programming and in the Tinker Lab. When you find her in the library feel free to quiz her on the Dewey Decimal System or on the newest technology in the Tinker Lab.
