Audrey Jane Wolfinger, Retired Librarian, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in library studies.
A former librarian with a love of literature and learning, Mrs. Wolfinger demonstrated expertise in her field for nearly three decades before retiring in 1984. She concluded her tenure as a librarian for Neshaminy High School in Langhorne, PA, where she found success for eight years. Prior to this role, she was a librarian and audio-visual coordinator for the school for 21 years. Notably in her career, Mrs. Wolfinger taught students how to do research utilizing the many resources that existed at the libraries. In addition, when the school district combined with three others to form a large school district, Mrs. Wolfinger played an instrumental role in transforming all four libraries into one cohesive and organized system.
When asked of her success, Mrs. Wolfinger attributes her accomplishments to her education. She holds a Bachelor of Science in education, which she earned from Kutztown State Teachers College in 1955. From there, she achieved a teacher’s certificate from Temple University, and later returned to her studies to achieve a Master of Science in library science from Florida State University in 1970. Mrs. Wolfinger was inspired to enter her profession under the influence of her brother, who was a Kutztown Teachers College Alumni and successful science teacher. Considered an expert in her field, Mrs. Wolfinger is proud of the many achievements she achieved in her lifetime. Outside of her professional work, she was extremely involved with such organizations as the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the National Genealogical Society, the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania and the Kutztown University Alumni Association. Looking ahead, Mrs. Wolfinger intends to continue enjoying her well-deserved retirement.
