Kristen Ramey has been a life-long library user. Some of her favorite childhood memories were attending the library summer reading programs in her hometown of Amesbury, MA. A graduate of Bridgewater State University, Kristen spent a couple years volunteering with refugees and the homeless in Stone Mountain Georgia and at a school in Tamil Nadu, India. While working on her Masters degrees in Social Work and Public Health at Boston University, Kristen continued to seek out her local library and use the resources at Brookline Public Library. A resident of Peterborough for 10 years, Kristen is passionate about everyone’s right to read, and the collaborative roles public libraries play with public schools in developing literacy in children and adults.
