At Germantown Library, the team of 14 Library Pages make up the “well-oiled machine” that is the backbone of the branch.  These unsung heroes make books and other materials easily available by keeping everything shelved and in good order.  The energetic team of Children’s Room Pages pictured here (l-r) are: Ana Turcu, Astrid Widjaja and Hafsa Karim. With their upbeat attitudes, they always add a breath of fresh air!
