Lubar grew up in Sturgeon Bay, Wisc., a small town in Door County, a peninsula that juts into Lake Michigan.

During high school Lubar worked at a public library and cataloged at the library of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where she earned a bachelor’s degree of computer science and a minor’s degree in library science.  She later worked as a computer programmer/systems analyst for five years in New York and New Jersey before she moved to Minnesota with her husband, Andrew.

As Minnehaha’s library assistant, Lubar will start by setting up a new computer system, learning how to use it herself, and then teaching it to teachers and student.  She has found so far that her background in computer science is “coming in very handy.”

“I’m enjoying it here a lot; everybody has been really friendly and really helpful, and it’s been a good atmosphere to be in,” Lubar said, and also stated that she can’t wait to work more with the head librarian, Bonnie Morris. She hopes to stay for as long as possible and have a great time here getting to know everyone.
