Staff Spotlight

Posted by thite on

Joyce Bigam, Children’s Services Coordinator

How long have you worked at Cuyahoga Falls Library? Almost 15 years

What do you like best about your position? I find child development fascinating and I love observing it on a daily basis, especially that “ah ha” moment when a child discovers she can sound out the syllables of a word, read a sentence or make a castle out of blocks. I also love serving and interacting with patrons of all ages, including parents, grandparents and caregivers.

Who are your favorite authors? I’ll stick with picture book authors. I love Nancy Tafuri, Denise Fleming, Il Sung Na and Karen Katz. I also think Mo Willems is brilliant, and somehow thoroughly understands the mind of a child.

Is there something about you that might surprise people? I have a bit of a sense of adventure and have gone parasailing, white water rafting and ziplining, and I’d love to try skydiving.

What are your hobbies? Cycling, exercising, reading, cooking, dancing, and a little travel – especially to the beach.

How would you describe Cuyahoga Falls Library? The library is an excellent place to learn something new, revisit an old favorite, play with new friends, discover and create. It is society’s great equalizer and provides something for everyone. The Children’s Department is newly renovated and beautiful, and I encourage the public to stop in to enjoy it.
