Meet your new Teen Services Librarian

Hello everyone! My name is Brantley Palmer and I’m the new Teen Services Librarian here at the Keene Public Library. Sorry this blog hasn’t been updated in so long. I’m going to do my best to keep it updated regularly.

Let me tell you a little about myself. I’m a big Boston sports fan, especially the reigning Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, and I actually worked for four years at NESN (New England Sports Network) after graduating from Keene State College in 2008 with my degree in Film. I also worked on a bunch of small independent films down there and also one big one, Moneyball with Brad Pitt.

I love movies, TV shows, comics, books, and video games and already have some fun video gaming programming lined up, including a Super Smash Bros. Tournament on Saturday, February 21st and a Retro Gaming Day which will include a Street Fighter II Tournament on Saturday, March 14th.

The Teen Advisory Group is something I’m trying to start up again too and our first meeting will be one week from today, Saturday, February 14th (Valentine’s Day I know, but it’s just a quick drop-in event to get ideas from teens in the area) from 12:00pm-1:00pm.

In the meantime, if you have any other ideas about programming or collections, please contact me at bpalmer@ci.keene.nh.us and check the library event calendar for updates on programming. I look forward to hearing from everyone!
