Lucas began working as the Technical Services Supervisor in October, 2015. Behind the scenes, Lucas manages the ordering and processing of materials, getting them ready for the shelves and into the hands of patrons like you! Seeing every book the library acquires ensures that his “To-Read” list is never lacking.

For the last two years, Lucas was a member of the Rainbow Project Committee of the American Library Association so most of his reading time was spent on materials eligible for the list.  Additionally, he loves post-apocalyptic novels, memoirs, and fantasy.
