Meet A Member: Meg Bingham

Digital Services Producer for Web Services and Head of Twitter for CRRL Social Media
Central Rappahannock Regional Library

When did you first know that you wanted to be a librarian?
I've always been fascinated with literature. I read Stephen King with I was 11 and from there, I've been an avid horror/science fiction fan. When I volunteered at the library in 2008, I was offered a page position which I happily took. From that point on, I wanted to be a librarian.

What is your favorite part of librarianship?
Getting to work with some amazing people, seeing a customer's eyes light up when you find the right book, and experiencing one of the best things I consider to be in life: reading.

What is the funniest thing that has ever happened to you on the job?
When I participated in the video, "Libraries Will Survive" back in 2009-10. It's a hit on YouTube.

If you could have anything in the universe installed in your office for your personal use, what would it be?
A personal masseuse.

What is something your colleagues would be surprised to know about you?
I love Lady Gaga.
