Get to Know Roger Reyes

How did you first get involved with NYLA?
Sustainability Initiative

What do you wish people knew about NYLA?
I'm relatively new to NYLA...so that is yet to be determined.

What is the best part of being on NYLA Council (or NYLA in general)?
Getting to know the "big picture" of all types of libraries in New York.

What do you do when you aren’t being a librarian?
Sports/Gym and finding new dining experiences with my wife.

What advice would you give to a librarian who is just starting out?
Be aware of and respect the many different opinions/styles of your colleagues. We are in a time of transition and you need to be flexible in thought and approach.

What is your favorite thing about your local library?
Peacefulness

Coffee or Tea? Why?
Neither...Don't drink hot beverages. Its Iced Tea or Red Bull for me.

Cats or Dogs? Why?
Neither...Kids keep me busy enough.

Cardigans - Yes or No? Why?
No...just No.

eBook or Print? Why?
Either...I'm flexible.

Dewey or LOC? Why?
LOC...everything changes.

And finally, the most important question....what is your favorite dessert?
Not really a dessert person...but would say cheesecake if I had to pick something.
