Meet Annette, the New Assistant Director
In August 2021, the Anderson County Library System welcomed Annette Greenway as the new Assistant Director. Get to know Annette!
How did you begin working in libraries?
After spending about a decade working in the financial industry, I decided that I wanted to try something different. In 2000 I saw a job opening at my local library. I thought I might enjoy working there because I loved books and libraries. I got the job and it didn’t take long for me to realize that I had found a career that was a really great fit for me.
What is something people find surprising or a little unexpected about you?
I have also worked as a yoga teacher, paddleboard instructor, and river guide.
Since picking a “favorite” book can always be a challenge, what’s something recent that you read and enjoyed?
I am currently reading Songbirds by Christy Lefteri. I recently read another book by her called The Beekeeper of Aleppo. Christy’s parents were Cypriot refugees and she has worked with refugees in Athens. She puts a human face on the refugee and immigrant experiences through the characters she creates.
What makes you excited for working with the Anderson County Library System?
This is my hometown library! I grew up in Anderson and even remember when the bookmobile would visit my neighborhood. I moved away after high school, and I am so glad to have finally found my way back and to have the opportunity to serve the community where I was raised.
