As part of our effort to make sure you know who the staff here at the Texas State Library are, we would like to periodically highlight staff members that you may at some point come in contact with! For our next staff highlight of 2021, I interviewed Adriana Cavitt Cavazos, Library Development and Networking (LDN)’s new Office Assistant!
What are your job responsibilities at TSLAC?
I am the friendly and smiling person you will first see when you visit our office. I provide administrative support for the LDN Division; I assist the Resource Sharing workgroup with TexShare and TexQuest programs; I also assist in the maintenance of accurate workshop participant records, with the preparation of workshop materials; and LDN travel arrangements and reimbursements.
What projects are you excited to get started with?
Working with TexQuest and TexShare and assist managing, updating and cleaning up CRM Database.
What was the last book your read/movie you watched/podcast or song you listened to that you enjoyed?
The last book I read was The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. This book is one of those you can’t put down. The story begins in 1945 when the main character Daniel is conducted by his father to a mysterious place in the heart of Barcelona: The Cemetery of The Forgotten Books where Daniel finds “The Shadow of The Wind”, a cursed book that will transform his life…..
What is something about you that people don’t know?
I retired with the Great State of Texas in 2018 after 21 years working with Texas Workforce Commission/Department of Vocational Rehabilitation Services.
What drew you to this position?
I always wanted to work in a library environment and get to know their structure; when I found this job opening, I felt it was exactly what I was looking for. I am very happy to be here and to have a second run as a State Employee.
