National Library Week – featuring Laura Dixon-Caldwell

This week is National Library Week, a time where we celebrate libraries and all that they contribute to our communities. This year's theme is "Libraries Transform." We at the Hamilton County Law Library hope the services we offer serve this purpose for you. Whether through access to resources and technology, expert research assistance, or facilities where you can meet with clients or interact with colleagues, the Law Library has a lot to offer. In honor of National Library Week we will be featuring a "Librarian of the Day" each day of the week.

Today's featured librarian is Laura Dixon-Caldwell. Laura has been the Reference Librarian and CLE Coordinator at the Law Library since 2010. She previously worked at the Cincinnati, Campbell County and Kenton County Public Libraries and Keating, Muething and Klekamp Law Firm.

A few things about Laura, in her own words:

My favorite part of my job is working on the topical updates, reference, and teaching CLEs. I learn something new every day.

My favorite hobbies are running and yoga. I run with the Tri-State Running Company Training Groups. I've completed 5 half marathons and two ten-mile trail races.

My husband is in the library business too. We met when we worked together at Kenton County Public Library. We have two cats, Gus and Peggy.

My favorite holiday is Halloween, and my husband and I have "Horror Movie Month" every October, and watch at least two movies a week. I'm already working on the lineup for this year.

My guilty pleasures are true crime books and "Law and Order" reruns.

Currently reading: "Prince Charles, The Passions and Paradoxes of an Improbable Life" by Sally Bedell Smith

Currently watching: "Iron Fist" and "The Americans."
