Jennifer Noble has worked in the library field since 2008 - as a public librarian, a researcher, and an educator. Currently she is an Adult Librarian III at Los Angeles Public Library, working with a team of adult librarians in South LA to provide culturally relevant library programming and tailored collections to a diverse patron base. In the past, she has worked with both children and young adults across the city of Los Angeles, creating popular programs that foster creativity within a branch library's informal learning environment. Jennifer was a member of the 2014 Eureka! Library Leadership cohort; she worked with RocketJump, a growing digital media studio, to create a series of programs about YouTube for millennials. In her role with adult audiences, she focuses on building strong community partnerships with diverse (and often unexpected) outside organizations to bring veterans, small business owners, and new adults into the library.
Her passion at Los Angeles Public Library has been focused on patron needs- from being on the redesign team for the new versions of the youth services website to working with the LGBTQIA committee to ensure an inclusive experience for all patrons. Jennifer received her Masters in Information Studies from the University of Texas in 2008 with an emphasis on digital libraries, user experience design, and information architecture. In the past she has also worked as a research assistant for the MacArthur Foundation's Digital Media and Learning program, the National Center for Women & Information Technology, and the Vaughn Cross Center for Reading and Language Arts.
