Marlborough’s new librarian Margaret Lopez, who started her job in December, said she plans to get more students interested in extracurricular reading by bringing trending books directly to students around campus at lunch time.

Lopez explained that she wants to make checking books out easier and more accessible for students. She said she hopes that by “bringing the library to the students,” she will be able to get more students excited about reading.

“I realize that a lot of students are busy…so I’m hoping that I will be able to help make the library’s books more accessible,” Lopez said.

Lopez has been a librarian for the last six years but first came to Marlborough in the fall of 2015, when she substituted while Ms. Gomez was on maternity leave. She took up the role of ARC librarian when Ms. Michaelson retired in December.

“I hope to continue Ms. Michaelson’s good work and build upon it,” Lopez said.
