Acting on Behalf of Youth: Chance Hunt--Seattle Public Library
Library Journal, v129 n5 pS20 Mar 2004
Few might think there is much of a connection between acting and librarianship, but Chance Hunt says his acting career in Los Angeles provided him with skills he uses today as a youth services librarian, from programming with kids to representing the library at citywide meetings. Hunt oversees system-wide services for children and teens at the Seattle Public Library and is the key liaison to the school district and all other governmental agencies that serve kids. Representing the library in government circles has taught Hunt how politics works and how strong a role the library can have in it. This article discusses the many accomplishments of Chance Hunt of the Seattle Public Library.
