Kim Roush, technology trainer

Each year during AmeriCorps Week, AmeriCorps members and alums are recognized for the extraordinary impact they make across our nation every day.  The popularity of our new program is a testament to the great need for technology training in our community, and Kimberly has embraced the task head-on to provide outstanding service and learning opportunities for our patrons.

Since our technology and computer training program launched in November 2015, Kimberly has utilized her part-time hours to help dozens of library patrons with their educational needs.
