Lindsey Fenner

Executive Board at-Large
(612) 543-5801

Penn Lake Library

Lindsey began with the County as a limited duration employee (AKA a sub). After several years with an intermittent, non-continuous or irregular in nature schedule, she finally achieved a permanent position as an Office Specialist II/Library Specialist at Penn Lake Library in Bloomington. She enjoys connecting library patrons with resources and then putting them back on the shelf again (the resources, not the patrons).

She got involved in Local 2822 because she realized things don’t change unless someone DOES something, and that someone might as well be her. Besides serving on the Executive Board of Local 2822, Lindsey is also a 2822 co-lead for the Library Meet and Confers, and the editor of Local 2822’s monthly newsletter, A New Voice (with the help of her assistant cat-itors, Lulu and Althea).

She has spent a somewhat excessive amount of time in post-secondary education, where she studied writing, reading, teaching, workers’ education, and opera. When Lindsey isn’t thinking about the next worker publication, union musical, or labor book club she would some day like to organize, she can be found supporting community journalism as a Board Member and Contributing Writer for the Minneapolis newspaper The Alley, digging in her community garden, and going on nature adventures with her partner.
