Sewickley Township Public Library
Mandy Luchs, Library Director

Mandy has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Penn State University and a Master of Library Science Degree from Clarion University. Prior to coming to Sewickley Township, Mandy worked as the Library Director at the Johnsonburg Public Library in Elk County for two years. She lives with her husband Ryan, daughter Madeline and son Benjamin in Harrison City, where she grew up.

She says, "I have really enjoyed my time here at Sewickley Twp. It has been so much fun helping the Library to grow and expand its programs and services. I am particularly proud of the incredible growth of our children's programs, especially the Summer Reading Program. People often ask my why I don't work at a larger library, but I truly feel that working at a small library is what I'm meant to do."

Debbie Flinner, Children's Librarian

Holding both bachelor's and master's degrees in the education field from the University of Dayton and Seton Hill University, respectively, Debbie has finally graduated from teaching preschool for the last 20 years to running our Library's children's programs. By admission, her favorite literary genre is Kiddie Lit, which she believes is best when read aloud. She is a self-proclaimed "sports junkie" who loves to cook and bake. Debbie currently resides in North Huntingdon with her husband Stan.

Naomi Cross, Assistant

Naomi is currently working towards her Associate's Degree in Small Business Management at Westmoreland County Community College. Before joining the library staff, Naomi provided care for children in church and home settings. When she is not at the library, she is busy taking care of her own daughters. She is a lifelong resident of Arona, where she lives with her husband, Nathan, and daughters, Dakota and Hayden.

Naomi is grateful for the opportunity to work in the library and be involved in such an important part of the community.

Michaela Cantini, Assistant

Michaela has a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from California University of Pennsylvania. Previously, Michaela spent 10 years in aging-related medical research at UPMC, then two years in child development/educational research at Carnegie Mellon University, and is currently active in the local home education community and in her church. She lives in Sewickley Township with her parents, her husband, Jeff, sons Anthony and Adam, and daughter MacKenzie.

Michaela loves to sing and has been known to “break into song.” She is also very fond of puzzle solving and is thrilled to be able to meet more of the local community by working at the library.
