Kayla Chagnon ~ Communications Manager

Kayla realized her passion for libraries at a young age when she found out that there were an unlimited number of books at her disposal, and she has not stopped reading since. Prior to moving to Bar Harbor, Kayla received her Bachelor of Arts in Professional Writing from Wilson College and her Master’s Degree in Magazine, Newspaper and Online Journalism from Syracuse University. After finishing college, she interned and worked at newspapers and magazines before settling into the library world at a small library in New Hampshire, where she is originally from.

Kayla is excited to begin on a new chapter, here at the Jesup and in Bar Harbor, where her passion for writing, books and libraries can come together. “A great library is a community center and the Jesup is just that. I am honored to be part of it.”
