This edition of Library Look brings us the LaGrange Park Public Library’s Jane Kucera, a volunteer.

Q. How long have you been with the library?

A. Years. I began by delivering books to the homebound and then, when I became limited because of hip surgery, began working in the back cleaning and replacing broken CDs and DVD cases as well as some filing of cards and also processing new DVDs and books on CD.

I have always loved the library. I remember as a little girl walking a mile with my mom and as I got older by myself to our neighborhood library. I loved reading the “Bobbsey Twins” series. Today, I love autobiographies and mysteries.

Q. What is your favorite part of working at the library? Why?

A. My favorite part of the working at the library is knowing that I am helping our the community in an area that I myself love. I also enjoy the personalities at the La Grange Park Library. There are a lot of caring people working here.

Q. What is something library patrons may not know about you?

A. I have self published three books now. “Seasons of My Heart,” “Taking Off My God Hat,” and, just recently, “Art and Soul.”

Q. What do you think is an underused feature of the library and why?

A. Computer classes.

Q. What is your favorite book and why?

A. “No Ordinary Time: The Rise of Spiritual Intelligence and Evolutionary Creativity” by Jan Phillips. I think she is a modern day prophet.
