Dolores Colarosa

Head of Children's Services
Brentwood Public Library
3500 Brownsville Road
Pittsburgh, PA

I have been at the Brentwood Public Library for 18 months and serve in the capacity of Head of Children's Services. Programs offered range from Bouncing Babies and Books for those wee little guys through Two Chapter Tuesdays for upper elementary-aged children. The best thing about my job is definitely getting to know the children and being able to bring smiles to their faces! My favorite compliment is, "You're so silly Miss Dolores!" Hobbies include cross stitching, scrapbooking and being a non-fiction book worm!
