The Warren County Memorial Library is getting its outreach services back on track and has hired Benjamin Griffith to the library staff to help provide materials into the community once again. Scheduled stops should be in place by December.
“Ben is a great addition to the library staff. I look forward to working with him to grow and expand outreach services in the county. We plan to visit daycares, assisted living facilities, homebound individuals, and more.” said Library Director Christy Bondy.
Griffith grew up in Littleton, where he developed a love for books, theatre and visual art. Performing on Lakeland’s stage starting at age 12, he saw firsthand the impact that literature and the arts have on our community. This formative experience inspired him to pursue a B.A. in Drama, graduating magna cum laude from UNC-Greensboro in 2015.
His first role after graduation was working at McKay’s Used Books and More of Greensboro, where as a bookseller he helped patrons find their favorite titles. Since moving back to the eastern part of the state, he has worked for the City of Rocky Mount Parks and Recreation at the Imperial Centre for the Arts and Sciences, as well as the Lakeland Cultural Arts Center of Littleton. He is excited to share his knowledge and experience with others in his new role and looks forward to championing outreach to every corner of Warren County.
