Meet MLC Monday: Mark Kyzar

Meet Mark Kyzar, Facilities Maintenance for the Mississippi Library Commission. As he puts it, "he takes care of anything that's broken and needs to be fixed." Mr. Kyzar is one of MLC's newest employees. Although he's been working in the maintenance field since 1995, he only came to us from the City of Jackson in October of 2015.

"I love my job. I make sure everything is done so people can be happy in their work environment."

Mr. Kyzar says that some of the best aspects of his job at MLC are that he is always learning something new and always meeting new people. He was pleased to find that all sorts of people visit MLC for meetings in the community room and to consult with staff. He almost met Maggie Wade here a few months ago. (We hope you get another chance soon, Mark!) In his book, libraries and librarians definitely don't fit the boring or shushing stereotypes that have been passed around for ages.

When he's not at MLC, Mr. Kyzar likes to spend time working and playing outdoors. He and his wife enjoy traveling together, especially to places with a lot of local history to offer. They've visited quite a few Southern states recently and had fun hitting several of the places featured on Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Mark is also a NASCAR fan--go, Dale Earnhardt!
