Lori Holewinski

Noblesville Youth Services Manager

Lori HolewinskiLori began working at the Hamilton East Public Library in January 1994.

Favorite Book: Little Women, Louisa May Alcott

Super Power Of Choice: The ability to fly.

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

Melissa Dragoo

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.
