Amy Volz is currently the Technical Services Librarian for the Wilmington Public Library. A native of Seattle, Amy moved to Ohio about 10 years ago. She began working at WPL in 2012 as a circulation associate, and has done a little bit of everything since. She earned her MLIS in December of 2015 from Kent State University. When not at work, Amy enjoys cooking, reading (of course), and working in the garden.
