Meet MLC Monday: Kelly Kitzman

Meet Kelly Kitzman, Reference Librarian and State Data Coordinator at the Mississippi Library Commission. Kitzman responds to reference questions posed by patrons either in person, on the phone, in a letter, or via an email. She also recently started her role as State Data Coordinator and compiles the data of all Mississippi libraries for submission to the federal and state government on an annual basis. Kelly began at MLC in December 2016. She holds a Master of Library and Information Science from the University of Southern Mississippi.

Kitzman says that one of her favorite aspects of her job is meeting patrons. "I love helping them with their questions." She goes on to say, "I spent a lot of time reading and in the library as a child. I love that libraries have something for everyone, even if it isn't a physical book. They offer classes, meeting spaces, and a variety of social options in addition to reading materials." An bibliophile to this day, Kelly still loves to read. She is currently reading The Ship of Brides, a historical fiction book from Jojo Moyes about Australian WWII brides sent to meet their husbands in England after the war on an aircraft carrier.She also enjoys traveling and was lucky to visit many foreign countries before her son was born. Now, she says, she and her family take a lot of day trips.
