Jessica Hudson has received a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration with a focus on Finance from Sacramento State University in 2008 as well as a Master’s in Library and Information Science from San Jose State University in 2010.
 
Jessica has only ever worked in libraries. She got her start in Solano County as a Departmental Aide. From 2001-2004 Jessica worked in Fairfield and Suisun branches, then from 2004-2006 she became a Library Assistant at the Springstowne branch in Vallejo, CA. Jessica then moved to Sacramento County where she was the Branch Manager for the Penryn Library of the Placer County Library system eventually moving into the position of Branch Manager of the Meadow Vista and Applegate branches. After Jessica received her Master’s degree, she accepted a position in Tehama County, seated in Red Bluff, CA, as County Librarian.
 
In December of 2011, Jessica came to work for Nevada County. She is both the County Librarian and the Manager of the Madelyn Helling Library. As County Librarian she supervises all the branch managers, oversees policies and procedures, works on grants and facilities improvements, and is the liaison for the library’s larger cooperative network. As Manager of the Madelyn Helling Library, Jessica supervises all the staff, is in charge of good customer service, scheduling, ordering materials, organizing adult programs, and is the liaison for support groups such as the Friends of the Nevada County Libraries. Jessica’s favorite part of her job is ordering new materials.  She loves to go through selections and donations and choose new books for their inventory.
