Adult Department

Adult Librarian, Ms Cathy, has been at Fairport Harbor Public Library for … a while now and is happy to say she is one of the lucky ones who really love what they do.  It’s not a job, it’s a passion – books, libraries, reading, and writing.  Throw a little theatre in there with some garden soil for good measure and life is just about perfect.

Kat’s cat Fiona

Adult Programming Associate, Kathleen (Kat) Chitty, has been a Fairport resident since 2001. She loves working with people and she loves reading so working at the library is a dream job come true! She’s a grandmother of 12 and loves all animals, especially cats. She is usually at the front desk and is ready to help with any book questions or requests that you have. Pictured above is Kat’s cat Fiona!

Youth Department

Gianna “Gigi” Conti is the Youth Librarian here at Fairport Harbor Public Library. Most of the time you’ll see her behind the desk in the Teen area. However, if you can’t find her, she may be doing story time, a cooking video with one of our tween/teen volunteers or outside doing art!

Technical Services

Ye Old Book Press

Carrie Todd attended Fairport schools and Lake Erie College. She has worked at the library for 20 years starting as a high school page and is currently the technical services specialist. Her job is to make the library’s items ready for you to find and check out and to make sure they are in working order.  In her spare time she enjoys reading (obviously), history, origami, photography, British comedy, and watching funny videos of animals on playground equipment. You can find her in the library offices or helping people with eMedia questions
