After nearly 10 years working in Illinois public libraries, Renee relocated to Minnesota, where she is now Youth Services Manager at Dakota County Library overseeing programs and services for youth and families across the system’s nine library locations. Renee was also the chair of her library’s Accessibility Team and managed the implementation of her library’s $100,000 two-year Disability Services Innovations Grant from the Minnesota Department of Human Services.
