Welcome to Lucas Berns New Library Staff

I am the new night library technician at the SCC Library. I
recently moved to the Quad Cities from Albuquerque, New
Mexico. My wife and I lived in the desert for the past 8
years. Previous to that I lived in Delray Beach, Florida.
While in New Mexico I received my MLS from Clarion
University. I also earned a Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art
with a focus on photography. I have worked in public and
academic libraries and, while they are very different
working environments, I enjoy them both. Most recently I
worked as the Site Supervisor at the Ernie Pyle Library.
The library is listed on the national Register of Historic
Places and was Ernie and Jerry’s home before it was
converted into a library.

 My wife and I met while we were volunteers for AmeriCorps
NCCC in 2002. We have a dog and a cat. We enjoy the
outdoors, travelling, dancing and playing music. I have
played the guitar most of my life and the double bass for
the past two years. I am currently taking lessons with Gary
Palmer, the principal bass player for the Quad Cities
