Meet Heather Bain, Branch Assistant at MCPL Rothschild!

Q:    What is the best part of your job?
A:    The interactions I have with patrons of all ages. I love kids, so being able to lead story time and do some of the program planning has been great!

Q:    What is your favorite movie quote?
A:    If I had to choose: “Oh yes, the past can hurt. But you can either run from it, or learn from it.” Rafiki from “The Lion King.”

Q:    What has been your favorite project at MCPL?
A:    The programming and decorations at the Rothschild Branch. I love seeing patrons’ reactions when they see a new passive program or see the selection of books that have been put on display for the month. As for programming, being able to connect the library with various organizations since I’ve started has been great! It’s great to get feedback and reactions, whether good or bad, to help improve what is happening at the library!

Q:    If you could witness any historical event, what would you 
    want to see?
A:    If I could take my husband with me, I would love to go back to when The Beatles did their Abbey Road photo shoot.

Q:    What’s playing in your car right now?
A:    The audio book for “Game of Thrones: A Dance with Dragons” by George R. R. Martin.

Q:    What is one thing you want patrons to know about MCPL?
A:    MCPL is open to everybody and tries to have multiple events and activities going on each month at all MCPL locations. MCPL is a great place to just relax and unwind by exploring everything that we have to offer; from books to movies to programs to computers, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Q:    What is your favorite place to eat?
A:    Matsu-Ya Sushi Bar and Grill in Stevens Point or 
Panda Express.

Q:    What is one thing you’d like to do before you die?
A:    I would love to be able to travel the world and visit some of more well-known or obscure libraries!
