Roseland Free Public Library Appoints New Librarian


ROSELAND, NJ - The Roseland Free Public Library has announced that Karyn Gost will be a new librarian at the facility.

Gost holds a Master of Library and Information Science from Rutgers University, a B.A. in Sociology from San Francisco State University, and ESL Certification from the American University of Paris. She has worked as a young adult librarian at Watchung Township Library and Belleville Library, where she also served as reference librarian.

“Every community has different needs,” says Gost. “Here in Roseland, my feeling is that most young adults are very busy with school and activities. My plan is to focus on three things for older teens: focus on being a hub for community service and outreach, focus on their future and college prep, and focus on the arts, for example, live music and art exhibits, as well as MakerSpace. For younger tweens, fun programs like pop culture themes, gaming and anime/manga are in my plans.”

In addition to attracting more young adults to the Roseland Library, Gost also plans to build up the library’s young adult collection of books, DVDs, and other materials.

When she is not working at the library, the Montclair resident enjoys running, practicing yoga and kickboxing, dabbling in painting and drawing, and of course, reading. She also lists art museums, fine dining, theater, and live music among her favorite activities.

“My dad was a Navy officer, so I moved a lot," she said. "I am lucky that I have been able to live in some amazing places, including California, Rhode Island, Virginia, Hawaii, Paris and Italy. In my heart, San Francisco is my hometown, since I spent most of my adult life there."
