My name is Abraham Escalante and this is my second year in the MLIS program. I am a Library Assistant with San Mateo County Libraries at the Half Moon Bay branch, where I help with the day-to-day of running the branch as well as help to run some of the programs we offer our patrons. I am originally from San Francisco and I lived in the Central Valley for 10 years before moving to San Jose for my undergrad and I am still here today.
Growing up in the city I had access to some wonderful libraries, which is partly what drove my interest for pursuing a career in the field and why I felt going after the MLIS would be a logical next step. I’m excited for the new semester and look forward to working with you all!
