Hayden Ellis joins the SMRLD as a Masters of Social Work intern. Hayden received their Bachelors in Criminal Justice from Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville. Hayden is currently enrolled at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in the Master’s program. Hayden’s goal at the library is to help and connect a customer who is in need with the services and resources provided within the community. Hayden has a passion for helping others and using solution-focused practice to help customers through any crisis in their life. Hayden also has experience with crisis work, as they currently work as a Mobile Crisis Responder in East St. Louis.

    Social work in libraries is a new and evolving field within social work practice. When working in libraries, social workers can be useful in many different ways. Library social work merges macro and micro practice to serve client needs by serving as a learning resource, building community networks, and providing crisis intervention. Hayden will be accessible to any client who is in need of connection to resources available within the 62040 area by phone at 618-452-6238 ext. 732 or email at [email protected].
