Heather Fisch, Associate Librarian, Hennepin County Library, Outreach Services

Heather Fisch is an Associate Librarian in Outreach Services at Hennepin County Library. In the spirit of Outreach's mission "to bring the library to anyone facing barriers" she provides library services to residents of the Hennepin County Adult Corrections Facility, senior housing sites in Hennepin County, and to individuals who are unable to visit the library due to illness, disability, or visual impairment. She also coordinates the monthly book talk program for teens at the Hennepin County Home School, a residential treatment center for juveniles who have been committed by the court. Heather, a native New Yorker, has a background in social justice work and documentary film. She thinks that witnessing a reluctant reader fall in love with a book is the bees knees!
