Color Our Collection Coloring in the Lobby

Coloring book 2018_2-7

HSL’s rare materials librarian, Emily Epstein, has worked on making the Color Our Collections for 2018 into a coloring book.  She collected the coloring pages into a booklet, and Douglas set out the coloring books in the main lobby with coloring supplies, including crayons and colored pencils.

Interview: Get to Know Lynn!

Have you seen the newest employee at HSL, Lynn Triefus?  She just started Monday, April 16, 2018, and has been training on the circulation desk.  I sat down with her and asked her some questions to get to know her better.

Jessica (interviewer): What interested you in this position here at HSL?

Lynn: One of the reason I applied was that my mom has had four types of cancer, and was treated here at Anschutz. I wanted to help the future of health care (Med Students, etc) in any small way. 

J: Would you like to talk about your family?

L: I am married with two kids; my husband works for the state in Human Services. He is a trainer, and he does things like employee training. We met at Lookout Mountain Youth Services facility where we both worked there 25 years ago. My kids joke that we met in juvie.

I have a son at Western State, who is a state wrestling champion, and a daughter who is a junior in high school and involved in speech and debate.

J: Do you have any hobbies and would you like to talk about your interests?

L: I am a movie-quoting crazy person, and a big movie-goer.

J: Would you like to talk about where you are from?

L:  I am from south-east Denver, a native; I went to George Washington high school.

I went to CU for a psychology degree, and I worked at Westminster Public Library in my previous job.  I worked in ILL and worked with kids: I can make any storytime a fun storytime, and I like hanging out with kids.

I like training — continuing ed — and meeting new people; I am excited for new challenges.  I  like to collect friends: I have friends from every part of life and from everywhere I go.  I am a social person and I like to go out with different people.

 

I asked Lynn to take a fun photo, and she wanted to take a photo with one of the skeletons for student use. She joked that it is her new work boyfriend, Skeletor!
