Cornell Thomas, Branch Manager (Iowa Library)
BB: How long have you been working for CPPL?
CT: I’m in-between my anniversary date (Nov) but back in 2012 I turned 30-years with CPPL.
BB: What is your favorite part of the job?
CT: Interacting with the patrons (both young and young-at-heart) and serving our community remains the greatest part of my career choice.
BB: What is your favorite book?
CT: Adult (personal reading): The Birth Order Book by Dr. Kevin Leman; Juvenile (storytelling): Any of Frank Asch’s books.
BB: If, you were locked in the library overnight, what would be in your library survival kit?
CT: Pen/Pencil, Paper (so I could write,) my library card and a mobile device to go online/download pretty much anything else. I could make “Read. Learn. Connect.” part of my overnight survival experience.
