Please give a warm welcome to Jane Natches, our new Electronic Resources and Serials Librarian.   She comes to us from Daniel Webster College in New Hampshire where she wore many hats.  She was the reference and instruction librarian as well as the serials librarian and the technical systems librarian.  Jane has worked for Hirsh before as a circulation assistant and is excited to be back in Boston.  Her hobbies include cycling and gardening.  In the past she has grown gourds in her garden which she then dried, carved and painted!  She’s currently trying her hand at beading.  If you see her around the library please feel free to say hello.

Please welcome our new summer intern, June Thammasnong.  Originally from California, she has recently graduated from the Simmons MLIS program and will be helping us with circulation, reference, and teaching.  Her favorite thing about being a librarian is connecting people with information resources as well as making connections with people themselves.  Outside of work she likes to hunt for ice cream by bicycle and travel whenever she gets a chance.  Her last big adventure was in New Zealand but lately she’s been discovering the US.  Please give her a warm welcome when you see her around the library.
