Brittany Rodriguez - Special Collections Librarian & Archivist

I manage the Victoria Regional History Center where we have materials on all things Texas history.

I love hiking, wakeboarding, and whitewater rafting.

One of my favorite books is The Great Gatsby, which the library has in print and ebook!

Jaena Manson - Online Learning Librarian

I help to spread the word about library services and teach information literacy to all levels of students! I am based out of the Katy instructional site.

My hobbies include cross-stitching, reading (of course!), knitting, sewing, and spoiling my cat.

I love mystery novels and have read through most of the Agatha Christie novels at the library!

JoAnna McCulley - Catalog Librarian

I add entries to the catalog so our print and online materials are findable. I also manage the government document collection and resources.

I love playing video games, cooking, reading, and crocheting.

When I was younger, Redwall was the 1st book that inspired to me to read.

Karen Locher - Library Director

My job is to work with our incredible staff to make the best library possible.

I am devoted to theatre. I started volunteering with Theatre Victoria (our community theatre) over 30 years ago as a member of the chorus. Since then, I have been in over 20 productions as actress, director, props person, stage manager, and costumer. My photo is the head shot from my last performance as a chef in the play Kitchen Witches.

My favorite book?.....hmmmm…like Brittany, my favorite would have to be The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.  Or A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson. Or maybe a hundred or so more, depending on my mood.

Tami Wisofsky - eResources Librarian

I am responsible for maintaining access to our electronic materials (journals, databases, streaming video, etc.). I track and record the usage of our electronic resources. I also am in charge of the Interlibrary Loan department which borrows materials we don’t own from partnering libraries for use by our students and faculty.

I love reading, watching foreign television and playing video games with my husband and kids.

One of my favorite books is Wolves of the Calla, which is #5 in Stephen King’s the Dark Tower series.

Lori Bryan - Head of Reference & Access Services

I run the public areas of the library--circulation, reference and shelving. I make sure all the desks are staffed, things are were they belong, and that we do our best to serve all of our patrons.

I work with Theatre Victoria a lot in my off hours and love to travel.

My favorite book depends on my mood! I love Margaret Atwood, Agatha Christie, Elly Griffiths, Stephen King, Sarah Vowell and of course The Lord of the Rings! And my iPad case is a Marauder's Map.

Grant Shaw - Emerging Technologies Librarian

I manage the jaX Makerspace, where students can learn about new technologies and collaborate on projects.

In my free time I enjoy reading and playing video games.

My favorite Graphic Novel is Neil Gaiman's Sandman.

Gail Crockett - Head of Technical Services

I am in charge of buying and paying for books, eBooks, and databases. I also run the library online system.

Fun fact about me: I like to watch NASCAR racing.

One of my favorite books is On Basilik Station by David Weber.
