Meet Me: Carrie Jourdan


Carrie Jourdan

Cataloger II

Carrie has worked in libraries for 27 years. She started as a Circulation Clerk and moved her way to Technical Services. Carrie can be found behind the scenes in the Technical Services department where she processes new books and materials to be added to the collection.

“I love creating subject headings and assigning call numbers that help patrons quickly find titles on their favorite topics,” Carrie says.

Carrie’s favorite books are cookbooks, gardening books, and spooky books, like those by Jennifer McMahon.

“I’ve recently fallen in love with audiobooks,” says Carrie. “They really bring all the different characters alive.”

When Carrie isn’t at work, she can be found walking and helping with animal rescue groups.

Carrie’s favorite spaces in the library are the display cases, because she loves seeing the diverse collections that patrons lend the library.

The Orland Park Public Library serves the residents of the Village of Orland Park. The library moved into its award-winning 93,000 square foot building in September 2004.

Patrons of all ages have access to a well-rounded collection of both print and non-print materials, educational and recreational programs, computers and instructional computer classes, excellent reference service, outreach programs for seniors and home delivery patrons, and storytimes for children.
