About Me...

 Staff Photo

I have been a Librarian for 24 years and I love it more and more each year. Working with students, getting them interested in good books, and sharing my love of reading with them is my favorite part of the job. It is very rewarding to me when I see students excited about books and I feel very proud to be able to encourage that love.
