Kim Alberts is an Early Childhood/Intermediate Librarian at the main branch of the Akron-Summit County Public Library.
Getting a B.A. in Theatre has served her well in that she treats every program and storytime like a performance. Kim has put her love of staying on the pulse of librarianship through serving on committees such as the 2017 Newbery Committee and the Reinberger Children’s Library Center Advisory Board and is currently the co-chair of ALSC’s Early Childhood Programs and Services Committee. She loves baked goods, yoga, and anything geeky.
