After spending a good portion of his career in customer service, Blaine Ross has found a happy niche as a reference assistant at the Beaverton City Library.
“I’ve run a fish market, a deli and driven a bakery truck … I kind of surprised myself by turning up in a library,” he says.
A friend is to blame. She recommended he take a test to become a library assistant. He did, and then worked for Multnomah County Libraries for seven years. He’s now completed a decade at the Beaverton library.
