Alexis Rosenbery is 2014 Lindsey Paul Rudolph Summer Intern
Rosenbery is our 2014 Lindsey Paul Rudolph summer intern and is
assisting in the Children's Department at each branch this summer.
Alexis is an Elementary and Special Education major at the University
of North Carolina. She is a graduate from Great Mills High
School and gained experience working with children as a daycare aide
and babysitter in the area.
The Lindsey Rudolph Fund was created in 2009 to honor the life of
Lindsey Paul Rudolph, a library employee killed in a tragic auto
accident. Spearheaded by Dr. Laraine Glidden of St. Mary's
College, the Lindsey Fund was established to create a student summer
work opportunity in the children's department to provide early
literacy activities for preschoolers, one of Lindsey's passion.
