Amanda Paffhausen


IT and Circulation Services


Amanda has a head for technology and a heart for public service. Putting both to work for the guests at Willard Library has been a labor of love for this Battle Creek native since she started as a student employee here more than 20 years ago, and she has worked in every department since.
After receiving degrees at Eastern Michigan and Indiana State universities, Amanda returned to Willard full time. Amanda has shepherded numerous advancements as the library's director of technology, including the recent addition of the Willard Library app.
Recently, Amanda has also returned to the circulation department, working to ensure every library guest's experience is a good one.
