Alicia Woodland still isn’t sure if it was the voice of Horace Greeley that told her “Go West Young Woman, Go West” but she left Ohio for Wisconsin in 2013 and she’s never been happier. With over 30 years of experience working with children from 3 months-18 years old, including classroom teaching experience, technology education curriculum creation, imaginative library programming and working in every library job from page to YA services manager, she’s still thrilled to work in Library and Information Science. A strong advocate of lifelong learning and an expert at thinking outside of the box, Alicia is also known for two quotes “I have ideas!” and “Well, maybe we can find a way to make it work….” As the Young Adult Services Manager at McMillan Memorial Library, Alicia has acquired a variety of affectionate nicknames including, but not limited to, Miss Alicia, Mrs. G and for some strange reason. Lamborghini. She has degrees and awards and such but feels that serving her local community is her greatest honor.
