Say Hello To Kara

on Monday, 24 February 2014. Posted in TLC Blog


My name is Kara Brehm and I am the new Technology Librarian for the Technology Learning Center. I hail originally from Ohio, but I have lived in Florida and in Illinois, so I'm new to the East Coast (and I am always looking for neat things to do in the area so if you have suggestions feel free to tell me!). I got my Bachelor's Degree in History and American Studies from Elmhurst College, a small private college just outside of Chicago and my Master's Degree in Library and Information Science with an emphasis on Special Collections and Digital Technologies from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

I used my first computer around age 4 or 5, an old Apple IIc and since then have been fascinated by the capabilities of computers.

It is amazing to think that computers went from being as large as an entire room to fitting in the palms of our hands in about 50 years. What are we capable of next? The TLC is here to keep you informed of many of the new devices hitting the stores and the new updates available for your existing devices.

I am so excited to be joining this amazing team of tech staff here at the TLC! The people that work here are an excellent group and are really here to help YOU understand the potential of the technology available today. Jeff and I have been coming up with some really great ideas for the TLC – new classes and demos, video tutorials, drop-in tech hours at all of the library branches, and other exciting new ventures. If you have a class that you would like to see us put together feel free to submit it to us via the "class and demo request form" under the help tab above or through this link here. It can be daunting to try to learn a new piece of technology, but I and the rest of the TLC staff are here to help when you have questions!
