Treasures of the Library
In this installment of a continuing series of articles on the Library’s treasures, our focus is on LuQueen Jackson, Branch Manager, a staff member for more than thirteen years.
LuQueen was born in Ashville, N.C., and reared in Newark. She’s a graduate of St. Antoninus Elementary School and Essex County Vocational Technical High School, continuing her education at Essex County College.
She began her career at the Library in 1987 as a bookmobile driver. Five years later, LuQueen gained valuable branch experience at Mount Vernon, before being transferred to the Roseville Branch Library, where she now is manager.
At Roseville, LuQueen and her staff of three have challenged younger patrons by telling them “Never Say Can’t” and by always encouraging them to give a 100% effort. With the beginning of a New Year, her goal at Roseville is to increase patron attendance and materials circulation.
