Mrs. Kathleen Kerner

The one thing to know about me is that I love libraries, school, and most of all, learning!  Libraries are wonderful places to me because they contain the whole recorded experience of humankind throughout history...and of what will be in the future!  That's an amazing thought to me, and what a privilege it is to be able to introduce to young people to that body of wonder and knowledge!

I grew up and attended college in upstate New York.  I have Bachelors' degrees from Syracuse University and the State University of New York at Buffalo, where I also earned my Master of Library Science degree.  I was a library media specialist in the Clarence Central School District in Western New York, and a librarian at the Grayslake Area Public Library.  In addition to being the Library Information Specialist at Walden, I am also an adjunct youth librarian at the Deerfield Public Library.

I live with my husband and two sons, one a Cubs fan, the other a Sox fan,  in Grayslake.
