Strange the Dreamer

Meet The Teen Team

Lori Holewinski

Noblesville Youth Services Manager

Lori HolewinskiLori began working at the Hamilton East Public Library in January 1994. Lori chose to work in Youth Services because she wanted to be part of providing children a place to learn, grow and engage with their community. “I love to watch children and their families enjoying the space, getting excited about books and ideas and having fun at programs.”

Favorite Book: Little Women, Louisa May Alcott

Super Power Of Choice: The ability to fly.

When I dance, I look like: I am extremely uncoordinated – however, I love to do it anyway!

If I were an animal, I would be: A horse because they are beautiful and peaceful.

Emily Burton

Fishers Youth Services Manager

Emily began working at Hamilton East Public Library in April of 2017. As a librarian, she enjoys the whimsy of working with children. Engaging with their families to promote literacy and to build a better community is the most fulfilling aspect of being a Children’s Librarian. She plays ukulele and loves to sing but she mostly likes doing silly things that make people laugh.

Favorite Book: The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Brian Selznick

Super Power Of Choice:Time travel.

When I dance, I look like:…no one is watching.

If I were an animal, I would be: A muskox because they look like something out of Nordic mythology and their thick fur keeps them warm even in the coldest temperatures.

Do you have ideas or questions about the TeenZone? We’d love to hear.

Both library locations will close at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 22 and reopen at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, November 24.
