Erin Emser, MLIS, is a Content Specialist I at OverDrive Education. When Erin was a child, she frequently delivered reading lessons to her makeshift classroom of stuffed animals, so it was no surprise when she received her Bachelor’s in Secondary Education from Bowling Green State University. She spent the next five years teaching high school English to animate teenage humans in a rural school district surrounded by corn and completed her Master’s in Library and Information Sciences at Kent State University with a specialization and licensure in K-12 School Library Media. Erin enjoys helping librarians in Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana build and maintain their digital collections in an effort to spread the love of education and reading to all.

Katherine Assink, MLIS, is a Content Specialist at OverDrive Education.

After that she moved to Toledo, where she worked as a children’s librarian, and earned her MLIS with K-12 Licensure from Kent State University. Most recently, she worked as a youth services librarian in Cleveland Heights. With OverDrive, she works with schools in Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
