OCPL announces new Technical Services Librarian
The Oconee County Public Library announces the hiring of Robena Barton as Technical Services Librarian. She was born in Aiken, SC, and graduated from USC-Aiken with a Bachelor’s degree in History. She earned a Master of Library and Information Science degree from the University of South Carolina with an emphasis on cataloging. “From my first cataloging class I knew I had fallen in love, and I spent the next two years making technical services the main focus of my degree,” said Barton. After graduating and accepting the position at the Oconee County Public Library, she and her husband were thrilled about moving to Seneca and look forward to enjoying everything the Upstate has to offer. Barton calls herself bit of a homebody, and enjoys the company of her husband and dachshund mix more than anything in the world. When not watching a movie at home, she also enjoys hiking, swimming, kayaking, and thrift shopping whenever she gets the chance.
