Stephen DeFrank is the Community Library Manager in Kensington. He has been with the Contra Costa County Library since 2015 and says he really enjoys what he does.

“Libraries are one of the last bastions of free thought and unhindered public service and access for all to infinite information,” Stephen says. “Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?”

He received his bachelor’s degree in English from Delaware Valley College in Pennsylvania and a master’s degree in library information science from San Jose State University. For Stephen, deciding to become a librarian was an easy decision.
