About Ivy

About Ivy
Hello! My name is Ivy Weston and I'm a librarian with 15 years of experience. I've helped patrons of all ages do research and find materials in a public library setting. Most recently I specialized in working with college-bound high school students. I'm well-versed in showing people how to use library catalogs and databases, as well as how to search the internet for information and how to tell real from fake news and quality information from that which is questionable.
