Veizaga is a Systemwide Youth Programs Librarian at the Boston Public Library and will serve a one year term as member manager starting November 1st.
“I am excited in my new venture as Member Manager for the Teen Programming HQ and I look forward to continuing the hard work that Jessi Snow started,” said Veizaga. “I want to make sure that in its second year, the Teen Programming HQ continues to become a source of quality programs designed for teens.
