PPL Welcomes Alix: PPL Lending Desk Supervisor

Alix Towler, Lending Desk Supervisor at Portland Public Library

“I’m so excited to be part of the staff at lending at PPL. I love being part of this vibrant space where the community comes for great stories, information, art, and exploration. I look forward to meeting you – all of our community members who use this space – and helping you get the library items you want and need.”

Alix comes to PPL with both Library and Social Work experience. Alix began working in libraries as an undergraduate at the University of North Carolina where she worked as a Circulation Assistant. After graduation, she worked at Duke University Libraries as a team leader for a re-cataloging project before moving on to the UNC Chapel Hill libraries to work as a Digitization Specialist for their Internet Archive. She also served as a Law Library Circulation Assistant at the University of Hawaii before moving to a Social Worker position at the Public Defender’s Office in Charlotte, NC where she spent almost 5 years. Most recently, Alix was the Venue and Special Events Manager for the Full Frame Film Fest, Camden International Film Fest, and Milwaukee Film Fest.

Alix has worked with adult learners teaching technology classes, GED classes, and ESOL classes. She has a BA in Journalism from the University of North Carolina, a Masters in Social Work from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and a Graduate Certificate from the SALT Institute. Alix currently does freelance documentary work and is working on a graphic novel.

Welcome, Alix!
