Hello there! My name is Rebekah Orensten and I'm thrilled to be the new Media Specialist at BCMS! I graduated from Hamline Univeristy with a B.A. in Sociology and Criminal Justice and I completed Masters of Library and Information Science (School Library Media Specialist) degree at St. Catherine's University.
When I'm not at BCMS, I spend time reading and I use the Goodreads app to keep track of how many books I read each year, It's a way for me to take notes on books so I can share with students. I enjoy reading YA novels - Ghost by Jason Reynolds is one of my new favorites. Besides reading, I enjoy spending time with family and friends as much as possible. I grew up in a family where we played lots of boardgames and cardgames - my favorites are cribbage, backgammon and Settlers of Catan.
I look forward to supporting the BCMS community with digital and print resources. If you have any questions, please stop by the library or email
