Hanna Municipal Library has a new face greeting patrons behind the circulation desk. Library Director Jenn Steinbrecker is pleased to have Jonah Greenman join the team at the local library.

Greenman stated he was interested in the position as he has a love of books and interest in people. “I find language, ideas, and other cultures / worlds fascinating. Literature presents an opportunity to discover and experience new themes, worlds, cultures, and ideas which we may otherwise never get the chance to encounter, visit or learn of. It is amazing that the universe found within the library is within reach of all and that it offers access to learn about all that sparks our imagination and curiosity. A library is a local time & traveling portal to other worlds, and it is a wonderful place to meet people who are curious and eager to explore. To be part of that world daily is amazing.”

Greenman is a multi-talented individual. A relative newcomer to the area, he began working part time at a local hair studio, S-ence Salon. His personal interests are varied. He’s a Professional Portrait Photographer, Web Designer and Graphic Artist. He is a self-proclaimed squash addict but also enjoys tennis and basketball. Recently he has taken up Pickle ball. He is an avid reader and includes Thomas Sowell and Ellen G White as his favorite authors. He also has a fondness for dogs and a love for pitbulls.

The position provides an opportunity to interact with and learn about the patrons for Jonah Greenman. He has found it a real privilege to meet and get to know more people and serve the community in the capacity of Interlibrary Loans Technician.

When asked what he likes about Hanna he responded with the following insight:

“The people here are really kind and friendly. Its nice to be in a community where people smile and wave and are happy to welcome new people. I also really appreciate the size of the community and the amenities it offers. It’s a hard combination to find. I am very happy for the great outdoor tennis/pickleball courts, and I hope to meet enough people with interests in those sports to play regularly.”
