Meet The Teen Team

Lori Holewinski

Noblesville Youth Services Manager

Lori HolewinskiLori began working at the Hamilton East Public Library in January 1994. Lori chose to work in Youth Services because she wanted to be part of providing children a place to learn, grow and engage with their community. “I love to watch children and their families enjoying the space, getting excited about books and ideas and having fun at programs.”

Favorite Book: Little Women, Louisa May Alcott

Super Power Of Choice: The ability to fly.

When I dance, I look like: I am extremely uncoordinated – however, I love to do it anyway!

If I were an animal, I would be: A horse because they are beautiful and peaceful.

Melissa Dragoo

Fishers Youth Services Manager

Melissa DragooMelissa joined the Hamilton East Public Library in 2008. She has always loved working with children and teens. By chance, she ended up at the Hamilton East Public Library and never looked back. “I love working with the families who come to our library.” Melissa’s favorite part of her job is matching a reader to the perfect book and hearing all the cute things kids say.

Favorite Book: Anne of Green Gables, L.M. Montgomery

Super Power Of Choice: To control the weather, like Storm from X-Men.

When I dance, I look like: A unicorn that just spotted a rainbow.

If I were an animal, I would be: A cheetah because they are the fastest animals in the world.
