Collage of 9 photos of public libraries, home libraries, and three photos of Amy Tippett at different libraries


In October 2022, I walked by a building under construction in my neighborhood with a large sign with a picture of the new Calvert Library (MD) Twin Beaches branch due to open in 2024. I took it as a literal and figurative sign that it was time to change careers from nonprofit project management and fulfill a lifetime goal of becoming a librarian and serving my community. I knew it was a longshot that I would get a job at the beautiful new library and knew that having an academic background would help me with this new career.​ 

On April 15, 2024, I began as a part-time librarian and now work at the most beautiful library in all of Maryland, the Twin Beaches branch of Calvert Library. It is now my turn to be the type of librarian I had as a child by showing professionalism, kindness, and empathy with each interaction. My formal education may be coming to an end, but I look forward to being part of a learning and growing profession for many years to come.
