Say Hello to Diann Cullen - Our New Cataloging Technician!

Photo of Diann CullenBoulder Labs Library is pleased to welcome Diann Cullen as our cataloging technician. Prior to coming to our library, she worked as a teacher and school librarian in Colorado Springs. She has also worked in the airline and retail industries.

Diann married and raised four sons while living in the U.S., Germany and then Canada. Eventually, the family settled in Colorado Springs, where she worked for Western Pacific Airlines and then returned to teaching. She earned a Master of Arts degree in Educational Media (School Librarian) from the University of Northern Colorado.

Diann's greatest accomplishment is "raising her sons to be good men." In her free time, Diann enjoys reading, needlework, attending philharmonic concerts, volunteering and skiing. Her ideal home would be "with the water to my front and the mountains to my back," so she can swim and ski. Because of her familiarity with Colorado, she "already feels at home."
