|CLA Elections 2015 - Kimberlee Wheeler|
Kimberlee Wheeler, Butte County Library (SJSU iSchool)
Over the course of the last year, it has been a privilege to serve as Student Representative to the CLA Board on behalf of California's students of Library and Information Science. It is my wish to continue in this capacity for another term in order to further the work that is currently underway with the CLA Board, the Student Interest Group, and CLA's many dedicated community stakeholders. Uniting students statewide through conferences, social media channels and peer networking remains my ongoing goal, with hopes of cultivating a free exchange of ideas in order to build lasting relationships for the future of California's libraries as well as our mutual professional development.
It has been a delight to be a member of the Butte County Library youth services team for the past five years while also pursuing my MLIS at San Jose State University. Working in youth services has been my focus, dating back to my prior years as a bookseller, and involvement with CLA offers a rich and rewarding opportunity for professional growth and engagement along the path to librarianship. I live in Chico, CA with my husband and our two tabby cats.
