Assistant Director / Youth Services Librarian – Jessica Wilhoite
Jessica Wilhoite is the Youth Librarian here at the Romulus Public Library. She graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a B.A. in History/Art History, then thought – now what? She took to the internet to try and find her next step and, literally, came upon links for library school; she enrolled at Wayne State and graduated in 2010 with her Master’s in Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree.
These days she can be found in the stacks of the Romulus Library, at her desk preparing great programs for the kiddos, or at home playing with her young son. She has been married for many years to her wonderful husband, Jay. She loves reading, reading, and reading…oh yeah, and coffee.
Melissa Adkins is the Adults Services Librarian at Romulus Public Library. She has a B.A. in English from the University of Michigan -Dearborn and a Master’s in Library and Information Science (MLIS) from Wayne State University. Some of her favorite library activities include hosting the book clubs and collection development. She’s addicted to Jane Austen novels, coffee, and Star Wars.
