Erika Hedin joined the MCL as a summer intern in mid-May. She is working on completing her Masters in Library Science at Clarion University. Erika was thrilled to start her internship with MCL as she has been a resident of Millvale since 2015 and this will wrap up the requirements for her degree!
Erika previously worked as a middle school science teacher and currently works for the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh–Hill District branch as an Assistant Children’s Librarian. She also volunteers with Girls Rock! Pittsburgh and is on their Board of Directors. Erika is originally from Athens, Ohio where she completed her undergraduate degree in Education at Ohio University. She has lived all over the United States including Michigan, Arizona, Maine, and Washington, DC.
Erika enjoys “Do It Yourself” culture,especially cooking for large crowds, beer brewing, planning bicycle trips, renovating a house, and brewing kombucha. She is excited to share her knowledge about these tasks with the Millvale community. Feel free to pick her brain about any of these topics when you stop in to MCL!
