My name is Michael Savarino, and I am the Information Technology Director at BCPL. I have spent the last 6 years bringing innovative technology solutions to the Library which includes IT support for our employees and patrons. I am supported by my exceptional team that always puts the needs of the staff and patrons foremost in their roles.

I am originally from New York City and moved to the area almost 7 years ago. I have worked in a variety of fields from corporate to healthcare to transportation. While all of these industries are different, a lot of the IT needs are the same. People want fast, reliable service. I have strived to do that for all the teams I have been a part of.

I think what sets BCPL apart from other libraries is its commitment to up-to-date technology. One example is the Boone Innovation Lab (BIL), our makerspace area. The BIL allows patrons to use equipment that would otherwise be financially out of reach for many. Some BIL patrons have even used equipment like our laser cutter, 3D printer, and quilting machine to start small businesses.

I love working at the Library and especially love working with coworkers who have a passion for serving our community, helping all to DISCOVER, EXPLORE, EXPERIENCE a lifetime of learning at Boone County Public Library.
