Meet Chad Dally, Library Specialist, event coordinator and adult event planner at MCPL Wausau!

Q: What is the best part of your job?
A: The variety of information sought by our patrons and connecting them with that info, and the freedom to try a wide range of adult programs.

Q: What is your favorite movie quote?
A: “Everyone knows Custer died at Little Bighorn. What this book presupposes is ... maybe he didn’t?” - Eli Cash (Owen Wilson), “The Royal Tenenbaums”

Q: What is your favorite place to eat?
A: At home with my wife, and The Delta Diner in Delta, WI.

Q: What has been your favorite project at MCPL?
A: The 2014 double-feature screening of “The Lumberjack,” a 1914 silent film shot in Wausau, and the 1983 documentary “When You Wore a Tulip and I Wore a Big Red Rose” about the discovery of The Lumberjack.

Q: If you could witness any historical event, what would you go see?
A: I should probably say the Moon landing, the signing of the Declaration of Independence or something like that. But I think I’d use my time machine to go to old rock, soul and jazz concerts.

Q: What’s playing in your car right now?
A: Thin Lizzy - “Live and Dangerous.”

Q: What is one thing you want patrons to know about MCPL?
A: It’s not just about books on the shelves. We have a staggering amount of information, tutorials and other resources available online, free and accessible from anywhere with a library card.

Q: Finish this sentence: “Before I die, I would like to ______________.”
A: Travel through Spain.
