Lisa Lepore, MLIS

Antioch University Los Angeles

Lisa completed her graduate work in library science at the great public university, UCLA. Although drawn to librarianship for many reasons, she mostly wanted to be a librarian because of the books. While in graduate school, she co-founded a reading program in a juvenile hall in Los Angeles and continues to promote reading and writing in her current position, as librarian and a member of the faculty.
