I began working in my hometown library as a senior in high school and decided that my job wasn’t just a way to make money before heading off to college–it was what I wanted to do for a career. Since then, I’ve worked in children’s rooms in libraries in Southern New Hampshire, reading stories to countless children, performing puppet shows, singing lullabies, and ordering more copies of Diary of a Wimpy Kid books than can be counted on my fingers and toes.
Outside of reading chapter books, picture books, and easy-readers, I spend the great majority of my time reading reference material for my degree in Library & Information Sciences. As a welcome break from coursework or storytimes, I often seek refuge in the form of chick-lit books. I love reading British chick-lit with a cup of tea, curled up on the sofa with my favorite blanket. When my nose isn’t firmly pressed in a book, I can be found adventuring with my husband, riding mountain bikes, or indulging in my love of photography . . . or chocolate.
