I enjoy children’s books
I will have been here 18 years in January. I started full-time as a general assistant then I moved to special education. I did that for a year and I’ve been in the library ever since. We have a new librarian this year. She’s wonderful.
What do you like about your work?
I like seeing the children the most. I like to read. I enjoy children’s books, so I like to work with them. I like talking with them. They’re always happy to come in the library. They’re usually happy to com ein and spend time with us. We see the younger children as a class and they’re always fun.
What are some of the children’s books that are among your favorites?
Oh, quite a few. I love Candace Fleming. She writes “Muncha! Muncha! Muncha!” which is one of my favorites. I like the “Click Clack Cow.” I like Kevin Henkes.
The holidays are near. Do you have any favorite holiday traditions?
Mainly my tradition is the angel tree. I do adopt a student. My children are all grown now and live scattered, so I still like to buy toys and things like that. That’s how I get my joy, is doing that.
