Emily Sexton, Doing a job worth doing!


I love being part of an organization that strives to make our community a better place.
My name is Emily Sexton and June will mark my 8th year with BCPL!  I started as a page at the Scheben Branch and eventually moved to Circulation at the Main Library. I later transferred to the Lents Branch to work as a Youth Services Associate, and I am now at the Walton Branch. I am actively involved in storytimes as well as programming for youth ages through teens but mostly preschool and teen. My favorite program is Art Club in which we explore a different theme of art each month such as mosaics, collages, chalk art, etc. It’s a ton of fun and fantastic to see the kids’ creativity.
BCPL has so much to offer, and I love being part of an organization that strives to make our community a better place. Whether it’s helping someone with their resume, finding books for a child, or just providing a safe place to socialize and learn, it makes me feel like I am doing a job worth doing and that’s a good feeling.
I am one of five kids and have lived in Northern Kentucky for 18 years. I graduated from Northern Kentucky University with a degree in both English Literature and Studio Arts. In my spare time you can find me sketching, watching Bob’s Burgers or the latest British detective series, reading something spooky or hanging out with the coolest kids I know, my niece and nephew.
I can never pick a favorite book but a few great ones, in my opinion, are The Catcher in the Rye, A Monster Calls and Paul Meets Bernadette. My favorite movie is Clue; if you haven’t seen it, stop reading this right now and go watch it. As far as music goes, I am completely obsessed with Sufjan Stevens, The Killers, Noah Gundersen and Ryan Adams.
My favorite thing about BCPL are my co-workers! I am so happy that I get to work with funny, supportive and kind-hearted people every day. Working in a public place, you come across some interesting situations, and it’s great to have coworkers that work together and make the best of everything.
