While a Division Manager, Littlejohn managed College Hill and Irving Street library’s digital and web-based services. Littlejohn also led the library master plan process and strategic planning efforts, provided leadership to a division of over 40 employees, and served on several citywide committees.

Littlejohn holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Arts from St. Mary’s College of California, a Master of Arts in Humanities from the University of Chicago, and a Master of Science in Library and Information Science (MLIS) from the University of Denver. Littlejohn has worked for the Denver Public Library, providing virtual reference services and the creation and maintenance of e-learning courses.
