Audrey Barbakoff of the Bainbridge Public Library has been chosen as one of the Library Journal’s “Movers & Shakers.”

Twelve years ago, Library Journal began spotlighting librarians and others in the library world who were doing extraordinary work to serve their patrons and to move libraries of all types and library services forward.

Barbakoff is one of Kitsap Regional Library’s adult librarians, and the first staff member at Kitsap Regional Library to earn the honor.

Barbakoff has also been named as an emerging leader in the profession by the American Library Association.

Kitsap Regional Library said Barbakoff has been instrumental in developing new programs for the library, and has created many innovative ways to serve patrons, such as her ferry-based book discussion group, “Ferry Tales,” her pub-based trivia night “Books on Tap,” and the “Dying For Love” mystery night program.
