Oxborrow comes to Lincoln from Marseilles and brings an extensive
background with her after serving as the children's librarian at the
Robert W. Rowe Library in Sheridan for seven years.
"When I started at the library in Sheridan, I just fell in love
with the children's programs," Oxborrow said.
Asked about her impression of the Lincoln Public Library, she
said, "I have been impressed with the staff and how welcoming they
have made me feel. My interview with Richard (Richard Sumrall,
library director) and Sue (Sue Rehtmeyer, assistant librarian) was
excellent. I got a really good feel for the library and what they
were looking for in a new youth services librarian.
"I am thrilled to be part of the community and am looking forward
to getting to know it," she said.
Oxborrow has a degree in music performance and has taught
children to play her favorite instrument, the oboe. She is also
looking forward to checking out the music scene in Lincoln and
possibly playing in the local music society.
