I grew up on Long Island and in Ohio. After getting by BA from Ohio State (Medieval & Renaissance Studies) and my Masters of Library Science from Indiana University, Bloomington, I applied for the position at Mamaroneck Public Library because I knew I wanted to move back to the East Coast. I was hired as a Young Adult Librarian, fell in love with the area, and never looked back. Since then I’ve been “Jack-of-all-trades” in the library, working in the children and adult departments and circulation, doing programs, and a variety of “techie” stuff such as early website design, AV setup and support, before moving to cataloging full time a few years ago.
When not in the library, I can be found reading (books, comics, the backs of cereal boxes), crafting (knitting, crocheting, sewing), attending SF cons, playing Pokemon Go, and engaging in other geeky pursuits.
My three favorite books are:
- Network Effect, by Martha Wells
- Bookish and the Beast, by Ashley Poston
- Aru Shah and the End of Time, by Roshani Chokshi
Ask me tomorrow and I’ll give you a different set of three.
