Background

Summary

I like to network with other librarians and share programming and service ideas. I'm passionate about National Novel Writing Month, Trivia Night, Book groups discussing classic literature, making podcasts, screencasts and videos but only when they are useful to someone, customer service and user experience, partnering with health organizations locally, encouraging people to read what they love and enjoy, quality reference service, the quest for the answer, and library services for young children, especially my own.
