Meet Francis Adebola-Wilson, Senior Community Library Manager at the Pinole and El Sobrante Libraries

francis adebola-wilsonFrancis Adebola-Wilson is the senior community library manager at the Pinole and El Sobrante branches. He has been with the Contra Costa County Library since 2017 and says he loves what he does.

“I decided to become a librarian because of my passion for helping people,” Francis says. “Working with the public is something I am very enthusiastic about. I enjoy providing patrons with the resources and skills necessary to enhance their own knowledge.”

In his free time he enjoys watching movies and staying in touch with family and friends in Atlanta and Nigeria. He is also a daredevil who loves heights. He stays in the top floors of hotels with city views and says the best experience was at the Burj Khalifa, Dubai, UAE, which is the tallest building in the world.

Francis received his bachelor's degree from Yaba College of Technology in Yaba, Lagos, Nigeria and his master's in library information science from Valdosta State University in Georgia. He also has a Ph.D. in public policy and administration from Walden University.
