Justin Hoenke is a librarian who has worked in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maine, and currently is currently the Coordinator of Teen Services at the Chattanooga Public Library in Chattanooga, TN. He likes his job a lot in Chattanooga because it is challenges him to think differently about how libraries can best provide service to their community in the 21st century.. Justin is a member of the 2010 American Library Association Emerging Leaders class and was named a Library Journal Mover and Shaker in 2013 but in the great grand scheme of library things those don’t matter much. He believes in giving the community exactly what it needs at that moment in time, working with tweens and teens in libraries to make them awesome human beings, video games as fun and great sources of reading, and creative spaces in the public library. Those are the library things that matter a lot.
