Welcome Kate!

Welcome Kate McAngus (LT member katemcangus), who’s filling the job we posted a few months ago.

Kate is going to be working primarily on LibraryThing for Libraries—doing customer and technical support, and generally making sure Abby doesn’t go crazy.

Kate’s a librarian, with a Masters of Library and Information Science from Simmons College.* She also has a Masters in Slavic Languages and Literatures from the University of Virginia.

She likes reading, running, yoga, dogs, Russian, breakfast tacos (the only thing Texas has on Massachusetts). Ironically, she’s a vegetarian with the last name McAngus. Kate hails from Austin, Texas and says y’all a lot. Favorite authors include, but are not limited to, Vladimir Nabokov, Eudora Welty, and Tana French.

*Bringing our total number of card-carrying librarians up to… four! (Abby, Chris C, Jeremy, and Kate)

Labels: employees, librarything for libraries


  1. I don’t see the contradiction in the name. Most anguses are vegetarians.

    Congratulations on the new gig!

    Welcome, Kate!

    I think I’m more jealous about this: “Masters in Slavic Languages and Literatures” then the job! Wow!

    Congrats Kate! Love your favourite authors! Masters in Slavic Languages–how wonderful! And a vegetarian–inspirational! My protagonist in my upcoming novel, Summer of the Dancing Bear, is named Kata–she is also one of my favourite characters.

    Wish you all the best.
