Meet Our Staff

Kelly Drake

Kelly Drake

Project Manager

For over 25 years I’ve worked in libraries, previously as the Member Services Librarian for FLO, Web Developer & Associate Director of Collections Access and Digital & Systems Librarian at Mystic Seaport Museum, and Circulation Manager at Connecticut College. A long-time proponent of Open Source systems, I've most recently worked with FLO and the HELM consortia with their implementation of Koha. Prior to that I served as a member of the CORAL (Open Source ERM) Steering Committee, developer of the Cost History & Reporting enhancement specification for CORAL, and as a participant in NCIP connector development between SHAREit, Koha, and Evergreen.

Software Manager

Prior to joining FLO in 2009, I worked for several years as a Programmer Analyst at the University of Michigan’s Taubman Medical Library. I currently work from my home in southern Maine, where I live with my spouse and two young children. I am a long-time free software (open source) developer and an  avid reader of dictionaries of etymology.

Walter Stine

Executive Director

I have been the director of FLO since 2006. Prior to FLO, I worked at Northeastern University as Head of Access Services, and at Harvard University and Lotus Development Corporation as a systems librarian. In my spare time, I like to hike and cycle. I’m excited to be nearing the end of a long-term project, a complete reading of Marcel Proust’s “In Search of Lost Time”.

Eliana Lima

Support Services Librarian

I joined FLO in 2018 as a Library Services Assistant and then transitioned to full time staff in May 2020. I'm a recent graduate of the school of Library & Information Sciences at Simmons University with a concentration in technology. I hope to bring my LIS skills and knowledge to work with me to help support the organization. When I'm not working I love to study Japanese, bake, and watch movies. 

Joe Sikowitz

Systems and Support Manager

I joined FLO in October 2018. Prior to this position, I worked as an academic librarian at both Champlain College and Roxbury Community College. In my free time, I like to hike, jog, play chess, and take my hound dog to the park. I am also an avid reader, and enjoy history, philosophy, literature, cosmology, astronomy, and lots of science fiction.
