Say hello to the newest member of the BU library staff, Kaylin Creason. Kaylin started last October in her new role as the Interlibrary Loan and Acquisitions Supervisor. But this is not her first encounter with the BU library. She was initially hired as an Interlibrary Loan student worker her freshman year of Fall 2011. As a student, when she first heard the news about her new job, she admits googling what Interlibrary Loan even meant. Now, she is the one who explains to the new student workers what integral part the department plays in each student’s’ academic career here at Bethel.
To get to know Kaylin on deeper level I decided to ask her a series of very important questions:
How do you keep sane during these Minnesotan winters?
Well, I’m one of the few people who actually has a window in their office… so I tend to look out the window often. When I go home I like to snuggle with a blanket and my dog by the fireplace
What is the title of the last book you read or listened to?
I just finished reading Sabriel which a friend recommended. She said it was her favorite when she was kid so I thought I would give it try.
What app can you not live without?
I cannot live without spotify. It’s what gets me through my long commutes
What word do you almost always misspell?
I almost always misspell inconvenience. And I type it often!
What food can you not stand?
Cauliflower. I always think I should give it another try, and I’ll even dip it in something… but no, it’s gross
What is your default joke?
What is brown and Sticky? A stick. People think I am about to tell a great joke…
What are you currently binge-watching?
Do you know any random handy dandy tips or tricks?
This is the best tip! If your necklace is knotted up just stick a safety pin through the knot, clasp it shut, and jingle the pin around. It will loosen the knot! Also, always carry a tide-stick-to-go with you. You and your friends will be grateful. I love those things!
Would you rather hear a constant buzzing noise or have the same song stuck in your head?
I would rather have the same song stuck in my head. It would be even better if it was a movie soundtrack.
Would you rather read one sentence of a book a day or read the same book over and over again?
Read one sentence a day. It would take forever.
Any random facts you would like us to know?
I have had the same library card since I was 5 years old
