Janie Hermann, in her role as Public Programming Librarian at the Princeton Public Library, oversees the more than 2,000 public programs put together by the amazing team she is privileged to work with. Her work at the library allows her to interact with a wide variety of local groups and organizations and she is dedicated to ensuring the public programs offered at the library not only meet but exceed the expectations of the Princeton community. She was named an LJ Mover and Shaker in 2007, has served on the NJ State Library’s Blue Ribbon Task Force on the Future of Libraries and is involved in many capacities with ALA, most notably as chair of the Programming Librarian Interest Group. As a teacher, librarian, wife and mother, Janie has learned that minute details can have a big impact and that planning is crucial, but you still have to leave room for some spontaneous actions.
