Jeff Zeh has been the Adult Program Coordinator for the Port Washington Public Library since 2019. He was previously the head A/V technician for the library for many years and this technical experience has proven very valuable with regards to hybrid programming. Assisting with the logistics and technical aspect of all different types of library programs over the years has provided a better understanding of what makes for a good quality program. Many people do not know that long before working at the library, Jeff worked as an environmental activist with Greenpeace for several years.
