Name: Stacia Maiorani
Current job: Education and First-Year Program Librarian
How long have you been at Lavery Library or Fisher: Just about 2 months at this time — and four years as an undergraduate student : )
How Do You Work?
What is your office/workspace like: I am the only librarian on the lower level of the library. My office usually has music playing, as well as knick-knacks that I love, including some book art pieces, the Lego Librarian, and random items from my travels. There are probably plenty of (neat-ish) piles of papers all over my desk… as well as hopefully a stack (or twenty) of books around! If I am not working with someone in my office or the Curriculum Center, I am most likely typing away at something on the computer.
What is a typical day like for you: One day at work is never the same as the one before, which I love. I am most likely running around campus to work with various classes or meet with professors, or I am on the lower level of Lavery Library — in my office, within the shelves of the Curriculum Center, or teaching in L-100.
What are you reading right now: As I type this, I am reading Diane Chamberlain’s novel, Necessary Lies. It is a historical fiction novel and I am really enjoying it!
What do you appreciate most about Fisher: As an alumna of Fisher, I appreciate how special this college is — the close-knit community and how the college really cares about its students and what they want.
What do you want the students to know about you or the library, or one thing you want students to know: BOOKS AND LIBRARIES ARE AWESOME!
What is your favorite word: Cucchiaio — “cuck-ee-eye-oh” — it is Italian for the English word spoon (even better — a small spoon for a cappuccino is cucciaino — “cuck-ee-eye-ee-no”)
What is your least favorite word: Any word that puts others down.
What profession other than your own would you love to attempt: Fashion buyer
What profession would you never want to attempt: Chef (…for the safety of others!)
What superpower do you wish you had: Able to fly!
What are you most proud of in your career?
–Having students tell me that I helped them and taught them something of value.
When you aren’t at work, what are you likely doing: Reading while sipping on a coffee in a cafe; snacking; going on an adventure (big or small).
