Rebecca Cohen

Early Childhood Education

Born on the Oregon coast to a family of farmers who told stories, Rebecca is an Oregonian down to her webs. Chided for her “storying” as a child, in 1986 she found a way to make storytelling part of her career as the children’s librarian in her hometown of Newport. Currently serving as a Supervising Librarian at Newport Public Library, she oversees Youth Services, Circulation and Volunteers. Her work with preschool children and their families has been a most rewarding part of her career and she is recognized statewide for her leadership in the field.
