The Tampa Bay Library Consortium welcomes Traci Avet as the new Ask a Librarian virtual reference coordinator. Traci was with the Palm Beach County Library System for five years before accepting the position with Ask a Librarian.
â€œTraci has a combination of face-to-face and virtual reference experience that is vital for this position,â€ said Diana Sachs-Silveira, virtual reference manager for Ask a Librarian. â€œWeâ€™re confident that sheâ€™ll go far with Ask a Librarian.â€
Born and raised in Houma, La. â€“ a town just south of New Orleans â€“ Traci earned her Master of Arts in Library and Information Science from the University of South Florida. Her wide range of interests include glass mosaic tiling, sewing, snorkeling, reading and writing. She and her longhaired Chihuahua relocated from West Palm Beach to the Tampa area for this position, and Traci looks forward to exploring the area and getting to know the Ask a Librarian community.
