Meg Lojek

March 13, 2020

You might see Meg Lojek cheering her kids at local sporting events, out on the trails, or welcoming you to the McCall Public Library.

Meg shares her unique path to becoming Director of our Public Library, a journey involving a few continents culminating with directing and opening school libraries in Bangkok.  Still an Idaho gal at heart, she acts from a sense of adventure and service, instilling this ethic in our own library.

After reviewing her life and career at home and abroad, we talk about why libraries matter. You’ll hear Meg’s sincerity for what she loves about her job. We’ll hear about the power of stories, and we’ll consider how libraries support community.

You may be surprised at all the creative ways our library works. From unusual check-out items to creative programming to how books are chosen. What about actual books versus ebooks, and what are the trends?  The book checked out the most in the last decade? Meg revealed later that the author wrote some of it in our very own library.

In the end, we hear someone dedicated, wise, and fully in love with her job.
