Spotlight on Cloquet Public Library Staff
Cloquet Public Library hired Justin Dinger to be the Youth Services Librarian, working especially with youth ages 10-18, in October of 2018. He immediately made an impact by instituting regular programming for youth such as Teen Reads on Mondays, where he reads aloud to the teens while they enjoy a snack, and Teen Tech Wednesdays. He has made some interesting discoveries, such as the teens really enjoy poetry and that they requested to hear famous speeches in June. Justin’s enthusiasm for technology and books is contagious. He was an English major at Gustavus Adolphus and previously worked for the Cloquet School District in their Technology Department. Here at the library he combines both interests, as well as a deep concern for the well-being of youth.
