Check out the latest Loud Librarians Lead vlog interview with Sarah Overvaag, Children’s Programming librarian at the Watertown Regional Library. We discussed in detail a READsquared program called Explore America that was created exclusively by Sarah. Learn how to create your very own READsquared program and how to implement Explore America in your librarian programming.
Sarah has worked in libraries since 2008. She started as a part-time desk aid at Watertown Regional Library, then moved to Lincoln Elementary School in 2013 to be the school librarian. She returned to Watertown Regional Library to take her dream job as the Children’s Library Specialist in 2019. Sarah is married with two daughters, Samara (16) and Willow (14), and has three cats. She enjoys crocheting, playing video games with her kids and reading in her free time. Sarah’s newest passion is sharing her education animal, Charlie the Bearded Dragon (pictured with Sarah) with Watertown children and adults.
