About Jeanette Larson

I am the former youth services manager for Austin Public Library. My experience with continuing education includes serving as the Continuing Education manager for the Texas State Library for six years. In January 2006 I "took my pension" in order to pursue freelance work. As an independent consultant and trainer, I teach for the library school at Texas Woman's University and present workshops for libraries around Texas and, increasingly, around the country. I live outside of Austin, Texas with my husband and our cats and two schipperke dogs.
