My name is Kristin Eberhart (Ms. Kris).  I am the Outreach Librarian at the Headquarters Library and the moderator of the A-RCPLS Teen Blog.  I have over 20 years of experience in Georgia libraries, am the parent of a college Senior studying dance and am acutely aware of the issues facing not only today’s often-overwhelmed and over-scheduled youth, but the concerned adults responsible for their care and nurturing.  New to Augusta, I enjoy the city immensely, have been greeted with warmth and kindness by all I’ve met and look forward to doing great things with the exceptional young people living throughout the CSRA, especially our valued patrons of the A-RCPLS system.

Feel free to drop me a line at eberhartk@arcpls.org or 706-821-2604 if you have any questions, comments and/or suggestions for YA or Outreach programming.  I look forward to hearing from you all.
