HOLTVILLE — Julio Manriquez of Calexico was recently put in charge of the Holtville library.
As a library clerk II, he fills the position left vacant by the death of Sally Henthorne on Sept. 8. Henthorne had been in the job for 17 years.
Born in Mexico, Manriquez's most recent employment includes working in the technical services department of the Spencer Library Media Center at Imperial Valley College.
Doing everything manually at the Meyer Public Library in Holtville has been a big change, Manriquez said.
"At IVC everything was on computers," he said, "but I like it here. It is very quiet and the people are friendly."
