What I do at the library: I work with teens and tweens – I order their books, plan their programs, and visit their classrooms. I love this age group; there’s always something new to learn with them.

What I like to do outside the library: I’m raising school aged kids, finding my way back to my nearly forgotten hobbies like knitting and baking, and planning (but not likely taking) elaborate vacations.​

I like books that have complex characters, interesting settings, and internal conflicts.

One of my favorite books is Dreaming in Cuban by Cristina Garcia. I love the movement in the story across time and place, the strong women, and the Spanish poetry sprinkled throughout.
