Patty Slezak

Patty Slezak has been an Adult Reference Librarian at the Wayne Public Library since 2004, and has a BFA Degree in Writing & Publishing, and a Masters in Library & Information Sciences. A huge fan of movies, music and audiobooks, she happily manages all the materials for those adult collections, and the digital resources for Libby. Need a recommendation? Please feel free to ask! 

Patty facilitates many programs which enables her to share her passions with others! Let’s discuss books and film at the discussion groups, attend one of the jazz concerts scheduled, or tune in to an interview with a talented jazz musician! She has also learned much about gardening through the virtual programs with Master Gardeners.

Lastly, Patty designs and produces the monthly adult program newsletter (aptly called "Check It Out!") and the mid-monthly adult bulletin ("What's New?"). Both are available digitally and in print to keep you up to date with all the library has to offer!
