By Donicia Soliz, Library Manager
Hi West 7th Community!
My name is Donicia Soliz and I am the new West 7th Library Manager. I recently worked at the Rondo Library, and it is exciting to now be serving the West 7th community and getting to know everyone who visits our cozy space by the park at 265 Oneida Street.
I started working for Saint Paul Public Library in summer 2007 as a Right Tracker Worker at Merriam Park and then worked at Highland Park before moving to Rondo.
When I’m not at the library, I like to read books, spend time with my five pets and enjoy being outdoors watching sporting events.
If we haven’t met yet, stop by the library and say “hey!” or visit us at a Play Date for families with young children on Tuesdays from 3-5 p.m., Family Storytime on Wednesdays from 10:30-11:00 a.m. or at “Comedy Magic with Brodini” on August 30 at 3:00 p.m.
Summer Spark for ages 0-18 continues through August 31, so encourage your kids and teens to keep reading and marking off their progress. When they complete their reading milestones, they can bring their reading log to the library to get another free book for your home library. Haven’t started Summer Spark yet? Stop in and we can get everyone set up with a reading log along with a free book to get started! I’m looking forward to meeting you and connecting you to books, resources, and more!
West 7th Public Library, 265 Oneida St. is open Mondays, Thursdays 12:30-8 pm, Tuesdays 11:30 am-5:30 pm and Wednesdays, Fridays 10am-5:30 pm; closed Saturdays and Sundays.
